PALM BEACH COUNTY (CBS12) — Only on CBS12—a deputy with a lead foot—cited for speeding—over and over again in an Internal Affairs investigation.
Internal Affairs found Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Deputy Ralph Brillinger had “a pattern of speeding going to and from work on I-95,” noting that he had gone at least 90 miles an hour at least 12 times in a six-week period!
One time on March 16, he drove 92 miles an hour, going north on I-95.
CBS12 talked to a local attorney with The Ticket Clinic in West Palm Beach who specializes in traffic offenses. He says for a deputy not to get a speeding ticket---driving that fast to and from work--seems unfair.
“If it were any one of our clients that had done that so many times within a period of a month, that would be a pretty big issue,” said Joel Mumford, The Ticket Clinic attorney.
Deputy Brillinger got a written reprimand.
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s office provided us with this statement: “Unfortunately sometimes an employee makes a bad decision which leads to misconduct. We constantly review our cases in which this misconduct was uncovered and our deputy was disciplined.”
