Off-Duty Fla. Deputy Relieved of Duty for Fleeing T-Stop

August 06, 2013  | 

An off-duty Orange County (Fla.) Sheriff's deputy was arrested Monday and relieved of duty for fleeing from a colleague who attempted to pull him over.

Deputy Aaron Larkin, 27, was driving his girlfriend's silver Infiniti without a seatbelt and with an expired tag. Larkin told deputies he had hoped to avoid contact with officers, reports the Orlando Sentinel.

Larkin initially lied to deputies, saying he had not been driving the car, but later changed his story. He was arrested at his girlfriend's apartment later on Sunday.

I know that no one is perfect, but it's shit like this that makes police officers, deputy sheriff, and state troopers look like the bad guy.

No one is above the law. The facts that he ran, then he lied afterward indicate to me he does not deserve to wear a badge. I hope he gets all that is his due.

I hope he never gets to carry a badge again!!!! He makes us all look bad.

What an idiot.

Needs to be relieved of his badge, his credibility is gone. This exposure alone will be the killer to his career. He'll be useless in any court case from now on !!!

Whenever I read about choices being made by LEO's along these lines I wonder how these people fell through the cracks on the front end---hiring. I hope agencies continually assess their hiring practices when events like these occur. I can't help but think it could be prevented by doing a better job vetting these people on the front end.

This is what happens when your employment process emphasizes spelling and talent over integrity and work ethic.

What an idiot. This guy deserves the arrest and to be stripped of his badge. He dishonors all of his and breaks the trust the citizens give us.

Sgt. Mike @ 8/7/2013 8:39 PM

Sounds like he made an immature decision and is being held accountable. Case closed.

Really sad to see that this idiot has no common sense, needs to find a new job because this one doesn't fit.
