• Fla. trooper who let state rep off gets job back


    MADISON COUNTY, Fla. - The Florida Highway Patrol has been ordered to reinstate a state trooper who was fired for failing to give a speeding ticket to a state representative.

    Dash cam video shows Trooper Charles Swindle pulling over state Rep. Mike Clelland of Lake Mary.

    He didn't give Clelland a speeding ticket even though he clocked him going 17 mph over the limit.

    The Florida Public Employee Relation Commission ruled Friday that Swindle should have been suspended without pay instead of losing his job.
