Nicholas Singley, 42, a former officer of the year in 2001 and a 20-year veteran the Hollywood Police Department has lost his job and is facing two misdemeanor charges after trying to score pot from a fellow detective, reports the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.
In May, Singley called a fellow detective and said he was “dating a new girl who is ‘hooked’ and likes to get high” and he needed Lopez to “hook him up if he comes across a nickel or a dime bag (marijuana),” according to the report.
The fellow detective reported Singley to superior officers who began setting up a surveillance operation.
When handed the pot, Singley told the other detective “You’re the man … you’re the best,” he said and put it into his gym bag. No money was exchanged.
But when the detective warned Singley not to tell anybody that he had hooked him up, Singley suddenly changed his mind, saying “Dude, my f—in’ job means more than anything,” before leaving without the pot.
HIS INSTINCTS WERE DEAD ON WHEN HE LEFT THE POT BUT TOO LITTLE TOO LATE!!! WHY DIDN’T HE SCORE HIS OWN BAG..WHEN YOU DO DIRT W/YOURSELF..THERE’S NO ONE TO TELL ON YOU!!!
