A breaking news message from my NBC 6 app flashed on my phone shortly before 10:00 PM, announcing, Miami Gardens PD Chief Busted for Soliciting Prostitute.
In an updated story posted just a few minutes ago, the news that former North Miami City Manager (and Chief of Police before that gig) Stephen Johnson was arrested at a Dania Beach motel.
Johnson was fired immediately. The article reported that, “A news release from the department said Assistant Chief Antonio Brooklen will serve as interim chief.”
What a dumb schmuck!
In case anyone is interested in the arrest details, they can be found at Sheriff.org:
For one thing, it was commonly believed that all the crap he pulled during his stint as City Manager was because he was simply doing former Mayor Andre Pierre’s bidding. Johnson can’t blame Andre for this one.
The second thing was that, in addition to the North Bay Village Police Department, at least there’s another opening for North Miami Police Chief Leonard Burgess to consider.
Ya know. Just in case.
