Broward Deputies Investigated for Shooting Gun Out Window

Two off-duty Broward County sheriff deputies were leaving a strip club earlier this month when one of them began firing a gun out the window, nearly striking a pair of Palm Beach County sheriff’s deputies who were on duty.

That led to the on-duty deputies pulling over the off-duty deputies in a felony stop, which normally results in jail time and criminal charges if it involves somebody shooting a gun out the window.

But that didn’t happen this time.

Instead, the Palm Beach County deputies made some calls and eventually, the off-duty deputies were released to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, who had shown up on the scene.

Now the matter is being investigated by the Palm Beach State Attorney’s Office, but that may only be because several of us began looking into the matter.

The initial tip came anonymously to Florida Cop Watch, who began making inquires, but also informed us about the incident, so we also began making calls.

Teri Barbara, a spokesperson for the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, confirmed they were working a case in which a firearm was discharged, but nobody was hit.

She also said two Broward deputies were interviewed, but not arrested. And she confirmed the case was presented to the state attorney’s office for a filing decision

The Palm Beach County State Attorney’s Office confirmed there is an investigation and promised to release more details in a press release.

This incident occurred on January 5, 2015, at 3:37 a.m. at Haverhill Road and Okeechobee Road in West Palm Beach. One bullet is said to have struck a Walgreens.

Broward County is directly south of Palm Beach County in South Florida.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
