THE MIAMI HERALD REPORTED THAT Veteran Coral Gables Officer Alan Davis was arrested for picking up a prostitute and driving her to the warehouse district near Merrick Park for the purposes of comitting prostituion related activities.
In other words, he wanted her to do that voodoo that she do so well.
A portion of the Herald Article is below:
A veteran Coral Gables Police canine officer picked up what he thought was a prostitute Sunday morning -- but not to take her to jail.
Instead Officer Alan Davis -- on duty, in his marked patrol car and accompanied by his K-9 -- drove the woman from Pierce Park in Coconut Grove to a warehouse area near the posh Village of Merrick.
There, police said, he offered her $40 for sex and began removing his gun belt.
(wow officer, are you happy to see me or is that a gun in your belt?)
Davis, 43, didn't know the woman was a police informant wearing a wire or that he had been under surveillance by his own department.
Davis, a 21-year veteran, was taken into custody in his uniform and charged with solicitation and transportation with the purpose of prostitution.
His police dog, Troll, who two weeks ago won a statewide bomb sniffing competition, was in the backseat of the cruiser, said Coral Gables Police Chief Michael Hammerschmidt.
(There should be an enhancement for performing a sexual act in front of a minor animal. We are assuming the dog was under the age of 18.)
The case really began a month ago, the chief said. Davis had been under investigation by Gables police internal affairs after the department received an allegation from another woman that Davis had solicited her for sex, Hammerschmidt said.
In the case that landed him in jail Sunday, Davis apparently first had contact with the female police informant on Thursday.
''There were discussions that led us to believe he was going to start working on this lady,'' Hammerschmidt said. ``She notified Miami police. They notified our internal affairs because they knew we were working on this investigation.''
The department said Davis is married and has a family.
Rumpole says, as any sex crimes prosecutor will tell you, the probability is that if he is indeed guilty, Davis has been engaging in this type of behavior for some time.
