Sunrise Cop Fined $800 For Slashing Tires

FORT LAUDERDALE (CBSMiami/AP) – A Sunrise police officer accused of slashing a gas station attendant’s tires will do community service and pay $800 in fines.

On Tuesday, prosecutors dropped criminal charges against 45-year old Milton Plante who was not required to admit wrongdoing as part of the deal.

Plante still faces an internal police investigation stemming from the Sept. 13 incident. He was arrested after witnesses said they saw Plante slash a gas station attendant’s tires. Plante was off-duty at the time.

Felony charges were previously dropped when it became clear a witness falsely claimed he saw
Plante waving a knife at two men.

Plante’s attorney says he would have been acquitted if the case went to trial.

    The internal investigation will be swept under the rug and this THUG will be out taking advantage of his authority.
