A 24-year-old British police officer has been fired after she attended a house party during lockdown — boozing it up and later slamming her car into a store, according to a report.

Tasia Stephens also is barred from ever working as a cop again because her behavior could undermine public confidence in law enforcement, Metro UK reported.

The former South Wales officer admitted gross misconduct at a tribunal after attending the party in Treorchy in April 2020, when the country was under lockdown, and driving nearly three times over the limit, according to the outlet.

A misconduct panel told Stephens, who was still a probationary officer, that she had chosen to ignore lockdown restrictions at a time when adhering to them “was nationally important.”

The woman’s representative had argued that she had been “distressed” after dealing with her first on-duty death and visited her aunt on April 25 to seek help processing it, Metro reported.
