A Florida sheriff’s deputy has been arrested after a woman alleged that he groped her and made inappropriate comments during an otherwise routine traffic stop on New Year’s Day. According to an affidavit acquired by WESH Orlando, the victim and her boyfriend had been ringing in the New Year at a local bar.
The boyfriend flagged the deputy, Matthew Donnelly, down when he noticed that the victim had passed out and may require assistance. Donnelly placed the boyfriend into the back of his squad car and then went to assist the victim. The affidavit states that the victim woke up when she heard a male voice that didn’t belong to her boyfriend tell her she was “[expletive] sexy,” and that he “has a wife.”

Florida pastor loses job after arrest in prostitution sting
A northwest Florida pastor was arrested earlier this month as part of a prostitution sting. Michael Steven Ward, of Molino, was arrested Jan. 3 after contacting an undercover officer and offering to pay for a sex act during an arranged meeting in Pensacola, authorities said.
Ward was charged with procuring for prostitution, a second-degree misdemeanor, and released later that same day on $500 bond.
He was dismissed from a leadership position at Atmore (Alabama) Apostolic Church, where he’d been pastor for several years, after his arrest.
Ward also managed a tire shop in Molino.
The Escambia County sheriff’s office arrested 51 prostitutes and customers during the sting, which began at the end of December.
