MONTREAL — The mayor of Laval, Que,. is not happy with his police force after a video went viral showing patrol cars joyriding at a muddy construction site.

"I'm indignant," said Marc Demers. "One of the responsibilities of police officers is to reassure the people by acting and reacting in the proper way."

Demers has asked for a formal investigation.

Demers said he hoped "there were people waiting for calls while the officers drove around in the mud."

He said the actions on the video don't represent those of the entire force.

"I believe this was an initiative sparked by a small minority of officers," he said. "I'm sure this isn't an everyday thing."

The video was apparently taken Friday, and received several thousand views on Facebook and YouTube before it was removed.
