Pig News XII

Police Chief Larry Massey blatantly broke state open-record statutes, commonly called the Sunshine Law, which is essential in keeping an eye on what our public officials are doing. And Plantation City Attorney Donald Lunny Jr.. sat by and apparently approved.

The trashing of the statutes came after I asked to see the internal affairs file on a steroids investigation involving two Plantation police officers. That request led to epic stonewalling by the chief, who tried to charge New Times unlawful fees, illegally redacted information from a document, and ultimately refused to release any more public information at all.

About 3 a.m. Aug. 29, a divorced mother of two had called police for help, saying a drunken former boyfriend had come to her home and was throwing her belongings from her car onto the lawn.

Anderson arrived alone and defused the situation. But then he started making inappropriate comments and coerced the woman into engaging in a sex act with him, said Chief Deputy District Attorney Robin Twombly.

The woman “continuously tried to talk him out of this,” Twombly said in court, but Anderson persisted. “She was scared; she was scared that he would be angry. He had a gun” and the woman felt too intimidated to refuse.

The woman, 34, said in court that the incident had changed her from a happy, outgoing person to a fearful, guarded victim who has had trouble sleeping or returning to work.

“I reached out for help,” she said tearfully, and Anderson “made me do things that I did not want to do.”

COLUMBIA, S.C. — A Columbia police officer accused of using excessive force against South Carolina football player Kevin Young has been indicted for assult.

David Beddingfield was charged with simple assault on March 13, according to court records. He had already pleaded not guilty last August to misconduct in office.

A misconduct in office charge against a second Columbia policeman was dismissed last month.

Beddingfield’s attorney, Mark Whitlark, has said his client did not do anything wrong when arresting Young. Whitlark didn’t return a message left late Tuesday.

An offensive lineman, Young said he was punched repeatedly while being subdued by police. He was charged with fighting and resisting arrest, but those charges were later dropped.
