A fired Miami-Dade police officer and his brother took their chances with a jury -- and won.
Antonio and Glenn Roberts were acquitted of conspiracy charges Tuesday after a two-week federal trial in which prosecutors alleged they participated in a cocaine-selling ring. They also claimed that veteran cop Antonio Roberts, 48, tipped off the ringleader -- a childhood friend -- that he was under investigation.
Last year, the Roberts brothers were arrested in a sweep of drug and gambling organizations. Another Miami-Dade officer, Michael King, 43, and former Miami-Dade jail officer, Marvin "Cone Head'' Coney, 43, were among those arrested.
The association’s logo covered the Camaro’s hood. A big decal with the 62 names of the fallen officers covered the trunk. And the FWPOA’s logos adorned both rear quarter panels. The idea came out of this spring’s national protests against police.
