Brooksville Basketball Coach Acquitted of Exposing Himself
Apparently last year Antonio Vasquez was at a park in Hernando County. He met a cop pretending to be new to area, and looking for friends. The cop initiated the conversation, the two went for a walk, and as they walked by a public restroom, it was the cop that wanted to go in, “because his leg hurt.” Then strangely enough, the cops recording equipment got garbbled, yet he still arrested Vasquez claiming the guy exposed himself and made lewd gesture. Score one for a jury smart enough to understand the precept, “beyond a reasonable doubt.” Cops love this stuff. It’s so much easier and more fun that solving real crimes.
