@CopsConsTV obtained Officers lapel videos of the Orange County Sheriff’s Office arresting serial cop impersonator Jeremy Dewitte On March 23, 2021 just before 2 PM a deputy observed Dewitte leading a group in the far left travel lane of the highway. Dewitte was the only one seen openly carrying what appeared to be a firearm, which is a violation of Florida state law, according to the sheriff’s office.
A deputy then conducted a traffic stop, pulling over the registered sex offender and “immediately took him into custody as a safety measure”, the affidavit reads. The deputy retrieved Dewitte’s firearm only to find that it was a device that could shoot out chemicals but painted exactly like a legitimate firearm appears. The device was not loaded, records show.
Dewitte claimed he did not intend to use the device for personal protection, but rather for the “appearance” that he was carrying an actual firearm. During a long two hour law enforcement interview (see part 2), Dewitte admitted he had the weapon to gain compliance from citizens he approached, according to the affidavit.
As Dewitte is a convicted felon, he is not allowed to carry any type of concealed weapons.
Dewitte was arrested and booked into the Orange County Jail on $5,000 bond, but he was released shortly afterward after OCSO filed paperwork with the jail allowing for Dewitte’s release before charges were filed with the State Attorney’s Office.
The charges were immediately dismissed by the Sheriff’s office once it was determined the firearm did not meet state law requirements for carrying a concealed weapon.
County records documenting the review of Dewitte’s arrest have not been made publicly available, and documentation of his latest arrest is no longer on the Orange County clerk’s website.
