A Dallas police recruit is under investigation after a night at a strip club ended in a shooting.

The department says the rookie officer called in sick for his shift, then went to “Club V Live” with a friend.

That’s when investigators say the officer got into an argument with someone there.

The officer wound up getting shot in the ankle at a nearby gas station.

He then drove to a hospital in Irving to get treatment and apparently tried to give them a fake name.

The officer is on leave, while the department investigates.
