Deputy quits after wife, mom-in-law take squad car for joyride
Apr 28 2009 01:31PM CST
A Polk County deputy has turned in his badge after his wife and mother-in-law took his patrol car out for a joyride. Officials said the 44-year-old deputy resigned Monday after serving 21 years with the sheriff's office. The deputy could not be reached for comment, after apparently taking a non-stop flight to Sao Paulo, where he has no known relatives or friends.
The arrest report said his wife and mother-in-law face charges of vehicle theft, theft of a firearm and impersonating a law-enforcement officer. His wife also faces charges of possession of a firearm of a convicted felon.
A third person riding in the back seat also was arrested, for indecent composure.
Witnesses reported seeing the patrol car driving erratically in Lakeland on Sunday morning. The deputy apparently didn't know the car had been taken.
