[Excerpts] An Apopka police officer accused of shooting at her husband recently ended a two-year probationary period as punishment for policy violations in 2007, personnel records show. Officer Tanya Culver, a nine-year veteran, is on unpaid leave stemming from a shooting Sunday at her Sanford home. Internal-affairs records from Apopka police show Culver was placed on probation in January 2008 following a July 2007 arrested in Lake Mary for wrecking her personal vehicle after a night of drinking while off-duty. Reports indicate Culver was with [J.F.], her boyfriend at the time, when she crashed her car into a utility pole. Officers indicated she may have been drinking. Lake Mary initially arrested Culver and charged her with DUI and battery on a law-enforcement officer, but the charges were later downgraded to disorderly conduct. That charge was later dropped after she successfully completed a pre-trial intervention program... An Apopka police internal-affairs investigation found that Culver violated two department policies -- conduct unbecoming of an officer and criminal violations -- for acting belligerently with Lake Mary police and fire personnel who responded to the crash. She was also suspended without pay for 160 hours, or about one month, and placed on probation for a two-year period, which ended in January... Culver, who last month married her third husband, [J.F.], was arrested and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon... [Full article here]

[Excerpts] A veteran Apopka police officer is in danger of losing her job after she was accused of firing a gun at her new husband during an argument Sunday. Officer Tanya Culver, who married her third husband [J.F.] last month, was arrested and charged with aggravated battery with a deadly weapon... "This is something that she could be terminated for," said Officer Steve Popp, spokesman. "But we will have to wait for the outcome of the criminal trial and the internal investigation to be completed to make a decision." Culver, 36, posted $10,000 bail late Monday and was released from the Seminole County Jail with instructions that she not contact her husband or go back to their home. Police records show that Culver and [J.F.] had been drinking prior to their argument and Culver had about eight to nine beers in about two hours. The argument escalated to a physical fight that involved Culver "grabbing and scratching" her husband, police said. When the fighting ended, Culver swallowed a handful of prescription pills and then left the house in her car, [J.F.] told police. About 10 minutes later she returned home and went upstairs to change. While Culver was changing into a bathrobe [J.F.] noticed she had a gun in her hand. She pointed at her head and told [J.F.] "You want me to kill myself I'll do it," report show. [J.F.] told Culver to put the gun away and she pointed it at him and said, "You'll go first and then I'll do me," according to the document. [J.F.] walked toward Culver to pull the gun away from her and it went off, hitting the floor and landing in a box of grits on the first floor, the report shows. When Sanford officers arrived at the home, they found Culver sitting in the garage. She did not comply with officers' orders and began undressing to prove she was not armed, according to the document... [Full article here]

  1. I HAVE KNOWN OFFICER CULVER FOR OVER 8 YEARS AS A GREAT INSPIRATION TO MANY CHILDREN IN APOPKA. SHE WOULD GO OUT OF HER WAY TO MAKE SURE THE KIDS WERE SAFE AND SHE TREATED THEM WITH RESPECT AND TAUGHT THEM HOW TO REACT TO BAD SITUATIONS.
    ALL I CAN SAY IS THAT SHE MUST HAVE MADE A BAD CHOICE IN HUSBANDS. TOO BAD SHE LET HIM PROVOKE HER. SHE IS A STRONG WOMAN WHO MUST OF GOTTEN HER HEART HURT.

  6. My mistake. Fuzzy eyesight. It should be J.F. (and I'll change it now) but the J name used in the article isn't Joseph. Maybe (?) the article changed his name because he's the alleged victim in the article?

  10. It sounds like she's as at-risk to COMMIT murder as she is to BE murdered, and neither of those is okay. WHOEVER needs safety or cool-off time needs to go to a place the other could not guess or know while they figure this out and make some plans. Neither should go to friends or family. And you my dear worried friend, need to not get hurt too. Please don't put yourself in harm's way.

    It is a shame how many spouses of law enforcement officers, are subject to abuse in their own homes. My sister has been married to a, now retired, police officer and she has been completely cut off from her side of the family for over 30 years! She trembles when he speaks to her and has had a long bout with drinking.My brother in law is a master at control with her, what she wears, what she says, who she speaks to, what she cooks, when she sleeps~ but he can't control her drinking~ and I think that is why she does it. He has made terrible threats to me that I will never forgive him for, but what he has done to my beautiful sister is nothing short of killing her! I can see that Tanya, who has been in nothing but abusive relationships, has been abused and thrown to the media as exactly the opposite of what she is. They have reported 1/2 of everything, just the 1/2 that puts her is a terrible light and have sensationalized the 1/2 that they report. The "cop" she hit in Lake Mary, is her x-husband. At the time of the accident, he was at the scene in uniform and after he called her a "whore" for being with her new boy friend, she slapped him! That's when she needed a gun! Her X was so nasty and abusive to his children and to Tanya that it sickened those around him. I pray that the truth comes out and that the media is made to make public apologies to Tanya and her family for all the BS that they have reported.

    So glad to see that there are people that know she's a good woman who keeps making bad choices in men. Please support her and show compassion. The press has crucified her and they could not be more wrong!

    He picked her up from jail,Apopka or Sanford PD never investigated who fired that gun,as everyone knows.IT DID NOT HAPPEN,also she did not trespass,he needed that attention from the Cops.He be falling off the wagon and beat her up again,maybe since she lost her job with the PD,family and friends may have to HIRE a Investigator.No justice for Tanya!
