Meanwhile, at least one national media outlet is linking this to some other recent South Florida Keystone Kops incidents.
Last week, an off-duty cop was discovered passed out and drunk in his patrol car, the Miami-Dade, Fla., police department told local media. Instead of being cuffed and booked, Fernando Villa, 32, was allowed to go home after signing a form promising he would appear in court, the Miami Herald reported.
A feud between Miami Police and the Florida Highway Patrol culminated in one trooper getting his patrol car smeared with human feces.
A Lauderhill police officer allegedly shot at a fellow cop in November before driving off and ordering pizza.
In July, Miami Beach cop Derick Kuilan nearly killed two people after allegedly plowing into them on his police ATV while taking a woman for a boozy late-night joyride, according to the Miami Times. He was fired and is awaiting trial on reckless driving and DUI charges.
