This is a video for a long car ride (or something similar). If you choose to stare at your [relatively static] screen for a couple of hours, it’s on you.
Miami Police Officer Adrian Santos was charged with Possession of Cocaine as a result of activities that took place on the evening of November 17, 2017, and the early morning of November 18, 2017 while Santos was in a Miami nightclub known as E11even. Santos, a two and a half year employee of the department, was off-duty and out of uniform at the time. And allegedly snorting coke…
Witnesses indicated that Santos was observed with a plastic baggie containing a white powdery substance and was observed inhaling some of the white powder. The Miami State Attorney’s Office has stated that nightclub’s surveillance video appears to support the witnesses claims, however the SAO asserts that the video is exempt from disclosure under 119.071(4)(d)2 Florida Statutes.*
The nightclub security director was notified and he approached Santos, speaking with him and then taking possession of the plastic baggie containing the white powdery substance. The security director then escorted Santos out of the nightclub and turned him over to the Miami Police Department officers who were working an off-duty security detail at the club. At that point it came to light that Santos was a City of Miami Police officer. Santos was detained in a police vehicle and the officers took possession of the baggie containing the white powdery substance, securing it as evidence. Upon completion of forensic analysis, the white powdery substance was positively identified as cocaine.
Santos’s trial is ongoing.
*A questionable assertion, but you need to pick your battles in this business and it doesn’t make sense to fight this one.
