[Excerpts] A car chase between an Osceola County deputy sheriff and his ex-girlfriend ended late Tuesday with the deputy in handcuffs and facing possible loss of his badge. Mario Dixon, 26, pursued the woman for several miles and repeatedly pulled alongside her vehicle to try to get her to stop, according to the sheriff's office. The confrontation began when the identified woman, who recently broke up with the married deputy, returned to his home to pick up her clothing, a report stated. At first, Dixon would not let the woman leave. Then, he followed her outside and began yelling and banging on the windows and doors of her vehicle, the report stated. When Dixon broke off the chase, the woman called 911 at 11:51 p.m. She told sheriff's officials she had dated Dixon since January but broke up with him because he had not divorced his estranged wife... While his ex-girlfriend told investigators she had feared for her life during the chase, Dixon said he followed her because "he wanted to make sure she made it home safely"... [Full article here]

  1. Shame he was not a Sergeant with an adjoining campground to an SO Major. He would probably be right back at work.

  2. Many officers do much worst & have kept their jobs. I'm sure he wasn't in the "click" that many agencies have. He should have kept his job, nobody wants to say that the Judge dismissed the case, because his own agency did not have probable cause to arrest him.

  3. Why is that? Is it because it is the truth? I don't condone domestic by any means but make sure the facts are established before you tarnish a person's life, as they did to this guy. You would think that after 5 years of being on the job, this guy would have a history of being in trouble.
