If you’re gonna get arrested in Fort Pierce, Florida, cross your fingers that you’re busted by Officer Doug McNeal.
Or maybe not. McNeal may have changed his behavior a bit since July 14 of last year, when — as TCPalm.com reports — he arrested two shoplifters at Walmart and then placed them in the back of his patrol car. So far, so good.
However, McNeal only handcuffed 24-year-old Krista Leigh. He neglected to handcuff her accomplice and boyfriend, 23-year-old Zachery Moellendick. That made it loads easier for the couple to kiss and do some serious back-seat making out during the trip. All of which Officer McNeal was aware of, because he played Barry White’s “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love, Babe” to serenade them while they did it.
Did we mention it was all caught on the patrol car’s internal video?
Once they arrived at the police station, Moellendick asked if he could smoke, which McNeal allowed, in violation of regulations. We should also mention that Moellendick had a lighter tucked in his pants and a cigarette behind his ear, neither of which McNeal had bothered to confiscate when he apparently also didn’t bother to search either Moellendick or his squeeze.
Then once they finished their smoke, Moellendick and Leigh commenced to making out some more, including some unspecified sexual activity.
Following an internal affairs investigation, the report on which was just released, McNeal was suspended for 20 days without pay for multiple violations of departmental policy.
