FELONY BATTERY ON A LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER, PUBLIC INTOXICATION – ALL CHARGES DROPPED

ALL CHARGES DROPPED – 8/20/2021

 

Orange County, FL

While at the Orlando International Airport, our client was alleged to have been drunk and belligerent while going through TSA screening. After getting into a physical altercation with federal TSA agents as well as local law enforcement (that was captured on body cameras as well as airport security cameras), client was charged with several felonies including battery on a law enforcement officer. The team at Longwell Lawyers sprang into action, as attorney Benjamin Jones ensured that the airport preserved the video and fought to achieve its disclosure. After a careful parsing of the BWC in conjunction with broader security footage, we were able to convince prosecutors to first, drop the case down from felonies to misdemeanors… then drop all charges, completely.
