Cop Fired After Authorities Saw What He Kept in His Home

Cop Fired After Authorities Saw What He Kept in His Home 

Article from Fox News by Greg Norman.


A former U.S. Army Ranger who won the Florida Sheriffs Association’s 2016 “Law Enforcement Officer of the Year” award has been fired from his job as a deputy after authorities found feces, guns, drugs and assorted garbage strewn about his “absolutely disgusting” home.

Bevard County Deputy Nicholas Worthy and his live-in girlfriend, Rachel Trexler, were arrested Thursday after police searched the Rockledge property where they lived with their 2-year-old child and three dogs.

“The house was in complete disarray. There was dog feces all over the house, there were firearms, ammunition, other types of trash and food,” said Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey. “Also found was a small amount of drugs that was inside the home and inside a vehicle.”

Worthy – who has since been fired — and Trexler are both facing charges of child neglect and possession of cocaine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia, the Orlando Sentinel reported. Worthy left Brevard County Jail after posting a $5,000 bond on Thursday, according to FOX35. The status of Trexler, who was also taken to Brevard County Jail, wasn’t immediately clear Friday.

So, concerning lifestyles, where does the law draw the line between “criminal” and “unusual”?

I’m sure the Brevard County DA’s office will perform due diligence to determine that.

This only shows that cops are “people” and as such, should not have any more or less rights than the rest of us do. I’m specifically talking about those who think that “only cops should have guns”.

Getting a badge pinned on your shirt doesn’t give some kind of magical power to anyone.

I don’t know what this guy’s problem is, and I am glad he didn’t do something awful under the color of law, but beyond that, it’s none of my business. I hope he figures out what went wrong in his life, and he gets that fixed.
