Exclusive: FL Sheriff Arrested, Charged With Felony & Suspended For Protecting Citizens’ 2nd Amendment Rights

Ben Swann

Liberty County, FL-

In a developing story, Sheriff Nick Finch was arrested, charged with a felony and suspended without pay for supporting a citizen’s 2nd Amendment rights. It’s not a story you hear every day. It’s certainly not a story you’d expect out of a county named Liberty.

The events began when Floyd Eugene Parrish, a Florida resident, was arrested and detained by one of Finch’s deputies for carrying a firearm without a permit on March 8th, 2013. In the state of Florida, this lands you a 3rd degree felony charge. Finch released Parrish because, in his assessment, Parrish was not a violent criminal and was acting innocuously. Finch called the clerk and told her not to draw up arrest documents until he was there to assess the situation. Note, Parrish had not been officially booked into jail- only detained.Finch

The arresting deputy had multiple complaints for overstepping his authority from citizens over the past several months before Parrish’s arrest. A month after Parrish was released from jail Sheriff Finch decided he needed to launch an internal investigation against the deputy due to multiple complaints and phone calls he had received. Once the deputy found out that an investigation was going to be launched against him, he resigned to keep the investigation from occurring. On May 1st, the deputy, who was no longer employed in the state of Florida, filed a complaint against Finch for the Parrish arrest that took place more 2 months beforehand.

  1. Seems to me that the ACLU has a great opportunity now to step forward to do the right thing!
    THIS CASE IS GOING TO BE VERY EXPENSIVE to fight!

  2. I just sent this to all of he Tea Party Leaders in my email list. I DO hope they do something about it.

  3. I know its been awhile since Ive made any comments, primarily because of work, but THIS- YOU BET YOUR ASS IM SAYING SOMETHING. First of all, the former deputy needs his butt kicked for multiple reasons, including acting like a 5 year old and abuse of authority. He must be a stout Obumma supporter and looking for a job with Barrys DOJ or DHS, maybe even the TSA. This Sherrif did the right thing. as a former citizen of that state I can tell you that having a weapon is pretty much a must. The Sheriff not only stood up for the people he swore an oath to serve and protect, he got rid of an idiot for a deputy. The Govenor needs his head examined, as soon as it comes out of Barrys ass.
