"suspicion of a tag light violation" then "officers asked if he knew anyone who could drive his car home"
The tag light is the oldest trick in the book to stop a vehicle. It is used as a tool to get at the very least a "defective violation" but in the bigger picture used to further the stop.
The big question here is when the person under arrest is then allowed to call someone to drive their car home???? I would think that the car would be towed and impounded for the driver was under arrest.
So, on one hand the MIPD stops you for a bulb and on the other they want to save the felon from tow & impound fees. That sounds off to me.
Notice to all criminals: Precheck your vechicle for bulbs and safety items before coming to Marco Island. Also have a driver on call just in case. What a joke.
