2 Fla. cops suspended for writing too many tickets

Investigation finds pension cuts fueled retaliation by excessive ticket writing, with a recently fired officer being called a "ringleader"

Palm Beach Post

Two police officers will be suspended without pay following an investigation into allegations they issued excessive traffic tickets in retaliation for pension cuts.

Officer Christopher Beesley will serve a one-week suspension and Officer William Rothrock a two-week suspension after an internal- affairs investigation determined the number of traffic tickets they issued spiked following a Jan. 18 Town Council vote to slash pensions. In addition to his suspension, Beesley is relieved of his assignment on the Motorcycle Patrol Unit and transferred to the patrol unit.
