This story came up about a man who is suing the Pasco County Sheriff’s office, claiming that they have been harassing him. He makes the claim that they have arrested him at least 6 times for county ordnance violations, but each time no charges were filed. I felt sorry for him, and pulled his court history, ready to call out the Sheriff’s office for harassing him.
It turns out that he is a liar, a pain in the ass, and the kind of guy no one wants for a neighbor. Yes, he has been arrested ten times by Pasco county, and it turns out that at least 6 of those cases involved ordnance violations. One for having grass that was at least a foot tall, with snakes observed crawling around the property. The others were for parking jet skis and other trailers all over the front yard of the property.
He wasn’t arrested in those cases for the ordnance violation. For those violations, he was issued a citation, which he refused to sign receipt for. Then he was arrested when he refused to appear in court. In another case, he was arrested for allowing other people’s children to smoke on his property without their parents’ knowledge. He was also arrested for furnishing his 16 year old child with marijuana. His son has 9 warrants out for his arrest. Yeah, real nice people there.
This also illustrates why you can’t trust the press. They lie and leave out details to push a false narrative. This lawsuit? In cases like this, the person suing should be forced to pay the Sheriff’s legal bill, and his lawyer should be fined for wasting the court’s time.
