Trooper Resigns Over Inappropriate Behavior
An investigation into the inappropriate actions of a Florida state trooper has led to his resignation.
According to the investigation transcript, the trooper singled out a female driver and made her pull over. Though she had done nothing wrong.
An FHP investigation reveals trooper Josheph Henderson began a 15 mile cat-and-mouse chase of his female victim.
On a lonely stretch of road in Levy County, Henderson's questioning was graphic. His female victim, Becky Shiminski feared for her safety.
Henderson admitted his purpose in the investigation. When an interviewer for FHP asked, "What was the purpose of asking her for her telephone number?" Henderson replied, "What was the purpose, like I said I wanted to talk to her and call her." The interviewer followed, "...on personal issues?" to which Henderson replied, "Yes sir."
Henderson had been with the agency for three years. No criminal charges were filed, but FHP says the state attorney in Tallahassee did not find his behavior criminal.
The department did plan to fire him, but he quit first.
