Today the puppy trainer reports: Morris home after arrest; chief deputy on leave

…Chief Deputy Mike Coup was placed on paid leave Saturday. But interim Sheriff Ed Spooner said Coup’s leave wasn’t imposed for suspicion.

Here’s the thing: everyone assumes that Charlie was in Las Vegas on vacation, although he didn’t tell anyone he was going. Among the people he didn’t tell was his number 2, Mike Coup. Coup was down in Orlando, and one of them is expected to be in the county to make decisions. There was a shoot-out involving the Sheriff’s Department and the top of the pyramid was gone from the county.

Spooner isn’t saying Coup did anything wrong, but I doubt he wants to be second guessed while the Feds are traipsing through the Sheriff’s office.

A small note for those thinking of going into crime: banks are required to report cash transactions of $10K or more, but they actually report smaller transactions if they see a pattern. You can check with Eliot Spitzer and Rush Limbaugh about this little quirk. [Note that this doesn’t apply to Wall Street-types who can, of course cash as many checks as they want for $9,999.99 with no paperwork being generated.]
