Oxford PD makes distasteful Urban Meyer joke

The Oxford Police Department has received some negative backlash following a distasteful tweet over the weekend that mocks the health of Ohio State Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer.

It all started with some harmless trolling directed at the Gainesville PD.

Hey @GainesvillePD, welcome to the @AP Top 25. We'll be saying bye to ya after Saturday.

After that harmless tweet, the Oxford PD then took their shot at Urban Meyer.

After receiving the backlash, the Oxford PD put out an apology of sorts.

We'd like to welcome the Ohio St fans to our timeline. #toosoon #WeMeanNoHarm

As we saw with a College GameDay sign last weekend, Meyer’s family doesn’t appreciate jokes at Urban’s expense. If they catch wind about this distasteful joke, we’d imagine they will have something to say about it.
