Quoting S12PPL (Thread starter): I hope they at least fine him the $1,000, and maybe a few days in the clink.
Fine him but keep him out of jail. The space in jail could be used for more deserving people. Give him a couple hundred hours community service instead. Also a detox program would probably be a good idea.

I saw this mentioned on ABC World News Now "headlines" segment early this morning, like 3:25am...but they didn't mention Largo, although I seen that before...
About 15 yrs ago or so, I did a couple of civilian ride-alongs with Largo PD...I remember a Sgt. Holley, but that was a guy, and this said "Melanie", so must be another one...back then, I listened to them on scanner for months (back when they were on 450mhz+-) so had gotten to know a number of officers (somewhat) via their badge nbrs and voices and personalities...quite interesting way to spend an evening doing ride-along!
For a big city dept, they were still doing some "small town calls" in person at that time, which I thought was nice...instead of just taking info via phone or saying it's not important enough for response...
