was fired for flashing his badge at a gentlemen's club.
You'd think after an embarrassing incident like that, Miami-Dade State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle would have, 1) Sent out a memo to all ASAs asking them to please leave their badges at home if they plan to go out and get sh*t-faced, 2) Taken away all badges from snot-nosed, twenty-something ASAs who have no need for a badge in the first place, or 3) All of the above.
Yeah, well...guess again, Pedro. If she did send out that memo, it apparently wasn't read by all in her office.
In his report, the arresting officer writes that Finkel got into a "verbal altercation" with a doorman after being told that he had to wait in line. Oh, the humanity!
After taking an "aggressive fighting stance" against the doorman, the arresting officer writes that he escorted Finkel outside. When the officer told Finkel to leave, "The defendant pulled out his wallet...flashed his gold badge at me and stated, 'We work on the same side'"
After that, things deteriorated quickly. (See arrest form embedded below.)
