A police officer that took part in a raid at the Austrian ski resort of Seefeld is now in trouble as well.

This particular officer leaked a short video that showed nordic ski competitor Max Hauke during the transfusion process. Though not the intention of the police officer, the video ended up going viral.

Authorities in Innsbruck have charged the officer with malpractice, which could bring up to three years in prison if he is found guilty.
