    Lightbulb What is the meaning of "chest poking" in this sentence?

    Hi, I've heard this word in a TV series called "izombie".
    First, I am going to give you the context:

    There is a detective who is trying to solve a murder case and this girl who is also a zombie and has some visions is helping him. They want to find an address and go there.
    The Detective says: I'll track down her address. You think your boss will let you come with me?
    Zombie girl: I have very little doubt about that.
    Detective: Yeah, when Internal Affairs asked me about chest poking I saw nothing.

    Thanks in advance,

    Re: What is the meaning of "chest poking" in this sentence?

    Usually, when one person pokes another person in the chest, it is in the middle of an argument. The gesture is usually meant to accentuate a point or a threat. Because your piece mentions "internal Affairs", it is likely that someone reported a police officer for poking someone's chest. The detective denied seeing it.
