FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – Police in Florida say they disciplined three employees accused of letting a dog lick peanut butter from a jar and putting the jar where others could use it. The three have been reassigned while the Fort Lauderdale Police Department investigates the matter, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported. The newspaper identified the three as police aide Stacy Jenkins, Sgt. Kim Logan-Hancock and Detective Kerrie Hagerty.
Fort Lauderdale Police Sgt. Frank Sousa said the three — including one who received a lifesaving award in a 2007 case, will face “possible criminal charges as well as privacy violations.”
