    Florida man arrested for assault after pointing his finger and yelling at an off-duty Sheriff's Deputy

    BRADENTON - A Bradenton man is facing assault charges after police say he pointed his finger and yelled at an off-duty sheriff’s deputy

    Two things ray miller says you should know about him. One, he hates Muscovy Ducks.

    “Our parking garage is littered with their feces. It’s like little bombs through there,” and two, he's a law-abiding citizen.

    He has no criminal record at least until now.

    Miller says it started when he and his wife saw someone feeding the ducks. They asked the woman to stop, but she ignored them. When she finally replied, miller says she told him "I’m a police officer, I can do what I want.”

    The woman was Manatee County Sheriff's Deputy Kym Bennett. Bennett and Miller argued for a few minutes about the ducks, and about whether deputy Bennett was trespassing on the property since she didn't live in the condos there.

    Miller says his wife decided to call the Bradenton Police department to ask them for a legal opinion on what they could do about the situation. But when police arrived, miller was in for a surprise.

    deputy Bennett told police that miller had been aggressive, and had pointed his finger at her. Bennet pressed assault charges. Miller was arrested and taken to jail.

    ABC 7 spoke with an attorney about this case. Mark Lipinski told us "I've never seen a case like this, don't know anybody who's seen a case like this. I've asked all the attorneys in the area, they've never heard of anything like this."

    Lipinski says he understands why miller is crying foul. He says, "next time you want to shake your finger at somebody, you better think twice."

    Miller thinks the whole thing is absurd. He will be arraigned in May 29th.

    I am sure there is more to the story than this. But lets just assume for a moment that this is actually what happened. Sounds like the deputy needs to learn to relax some. If she thinks this was bad she has no idea. I have to say that if she pressed the charges on this, she needs to get out of this line of work.
    Being the best is not what always counts. What counts is always trying your best.

    Remember who you are, and where you came from. That way you never get a big head.


    May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

    Florida must have interesting assault charges.

    I suppose if her was trying to poke her, and missed?

    In California, assault is an incomplete battery, which means there had to be intent.

    I see lots of rubber duckies in her locker, for weeks to come.

    ive seen it happen, but it wasnt after the fact. i have seen someone take a step toward a uniformed officer while aggressively pointing their finger in his face and the officer became proactive rather than reactive and instantly placed that individual on the ground and in handcuffs.

    he articulated the intent was to assault him. it held up.
    in the warriors code there's no surrender, though his body says stop, his spirit cries...NEVER. deep in our souls, a quiet ember, knows its you against you, its the paradox that drives us all. its a battle of wills, in the heat of attack, its the passion that kills, and victory is yours alone.

    Except that she was off-duty, and contacted by the citizen about possibly trespassing.

    Remember, he's the one who called the police.

    Are we going to see two departments sued?????

    i agree with you...when i saw it happen, it was immediate, the officer was uniformed, and acting in his official capacity.

    Unhappy

    If this story is correct as written I would be very disappointed. It is idiots like this deputy that give us all a bad name.

    And yes I can see the tort clouds forming on the horizon.
    Just another voice in the crowd!

    you know... this wouldnt surprise me...
    I was on a call with a neighboring city detective one time with a subject who had a murder warrant... she came to pick him up and it was slightly raining...she had another officer with her and i had the subject cuffed in my car...
    we had to transfer cuffs and cars and well in the process her friggin umbrella hits me in the head not once but twice!... i finally take my hand and block the third mishap where my hand touches... I mean TOUCHES her wrist and then she makes a report of battery against me.... fucking ridiculous!!! it was all dropped and she got demoted but anyway...
    I wasnt there at this call, however it sounds a bit extreme

    We dallied under
    Vine maples and sapling alders
    Searched for lady slippers
    But instead
    Found blackberry riots and
    Desiccated branches

    Brought ghost ferns and
    Hollows filled with
    Skunk cabbage
    While waves wrapped
    Intricate lacings of weeds

    Were hard enough to make
    The sun turn tail and
    Tender enough to attract me

    The only way I could even remotely see this as being up-held is if he pointed his finger at her in the shape of a "gun". You know with the thumb up. Other than that it sounds like there is going to be alot of heart ache for all the officers ad both departments.

    In NY assault = physical injury. No injury, no assault. Finger pointing, and an argument would be harassment at best, and if not in (on duty) PO prescence, then its not arrestable (summons in lieu of)

    I think phantasm would agree with me that this deputy wouldn't survive a day in NYC.

    If it went down as reported I hope she becomes a vet. Dealing with humans doesn't seem to be her talent.
