Good luck, stay safe andstay away from this guy and his buddies.
“MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A City of Miami police officer is on the wrong side of the law, facing a charge of cocaine possession.
Officer Adrian Santos is suspended with pay pending termination proceedings, according to Miami Police Chief Rodolfo Llanes who spoke at an afternoon news conference regarding the arrest.
Investigators say Santos was charged for allegedly snorting cocaine at E11EVEN nightclub in Miami on November 18th and it was captured on club surveillance video.
“It appears [to show] him bringing something to his nose, and sniffing the cocaine,” Llanes said of the surveillance footage.
Santos was detained by club bouncers and turned over to Miami Police.
“A forensic analysis positively indicated the white powdery substance as cocaine,” Llanes added.
A two and a half-year veteran, Santos was off-duty and out of uniform at the time.
Santos surrendered to authorities on January 8th and has since been released.”
