Defiant Miami police officer is arrested
Earlier this year, Miami Police Officer Geovani Nunez made headlines when he defiantly told a Miami journalist that his police department could “stick that blue line up their ass” in regards to the Blue Code of Silence that requires officers to remain silent about the misconduct of fellow officers.
On Thursday, he was one of two Miami police officers arrested on drug and stolen merchandise charges, according to The Miami Herald.
Meanwhile, Police Chief John Timoney received a slap on the wrist from the Florida Commission on Ethics after admitting he was wrong for accepting a $54,000 Lexus as a gift, courtesy of the Lexus of Kendall dealership.
Timoney, who admitted that he violated state disclosure laws by not declaring the luxury vehicle he drove for 14 months, was fined $500. He makes more than $214,000 a year.
