STOPPING FAKE COP’S 100 MPH CHASE 2008
What happened the night an off-duty Palm Beach Gardens firefighter tried to pullover a driver on I-95 in March? Newly released video gives us a look at what occurred. Dash-cam video from Boynton Beach Police from March 20th shows two pick-up trucks speeding down I-95 at 100 miles an hour. Terry Scott Petruzzi, an off-duty firefighter and private investigator, was driving a red Toyota pickup truck, and, police say, he had displayed flashing red and white lights trying to pull over a gray Nissan pick-up truck. A Boynton Beach policeman stopped them both, and later, off-camera, he can be heard arresting Petruzzi for impersonating a police officer. "For you to be slowin' people down, huh-huh. That's me, see? The police. Not private investigators. Yes sir. Not firefighters. I don't know what it is that you're doin' out here. But we're gonna end it! I'll tell you this. You've got issues. Whatever they are, you've got to deal with them. But you aren't gonna come out here and pretend you're something you're not and put people in danger." Prosecutors have dropped charges against Petruzzi. Paperwork submitted by the state attorney's office dated May 30 does not explain why. Petruzzi's attorney told us his client never impersonated a police officer and the legal system worked the way it's supposed to. The city manager told us they have no plans to reinstate Petruzzi as a firefighter. No charges for ex-firefighter who made traffic stop on I-95 Ft. Lauderdale, FL, "Sun Sentinel"; 6/5/08; Prosecutors have decided not to file charges against a former Palm Beach Gardens firefighter accused of impersonating a police officer in Boynton Beach, according to documents released Wednesday. The case was dropped May 30 against Terry Scott Petruzzi, who police said was driving about 100 mph when he tried to pull over a man in a pickup truck on southbound Interstate 95 near Gateway Boulevard last March 20th. Michael Edmondson, a spokesman for the Palm Beach County State Attorney's Office, said the charges were dropped because the arresting officer later thought it more appropriate that Petruzzi face a traffic violation that carries a $500 fine. Petruzzi's lawyer, John H. Reynolds, said his client was fired weeks ago from his firefighter job as a lieutenant. Palm Beach Gardens Fire-Rescue Deputy Chief C.R. Brown said Petruzzi was let go because of the department's internal investigation. He said he would not comment further since it is a personnel matter. Reynolds said the charge wasn't strong enough to stand up in court. "While there might have been probable cause for an arrest, probable cause is a long way from beyond a reasonable doubt," Reynolds said. Petruzzi's personal vehicle, a red Toyota Tacoma, had flashing strobe lights in the front and back. Reynolds said his client never told anyone he was a police officer and his pickup had red, white and amber lights, not the traditional law enforcement blue. Boynton Beach Police, who pulled over Petruzzi and the man they said he was pursuing, said Petruzzi told them he was on his way to work as a private investigator in Fort Lauderdale, according to an arrest report. He told police he wanted to get the other driver to slow down, the report said. When asked why he didn't call police, the report quoted Petruzzi as saying, "I thought that I could get him to slow down on my own, officer." Petruzzi, 40, has a concealed weapons and private investigator's license, police said. He also had a police scanner, a loaded 9mm handgun and a video camera on the dashboard. The man Petruzzi tried to pull over, Matthew LoGuidice, 24, of Tamarac, told officers he was speeding and thought an undercover officer was pulling him over, police said. "If he really thought Mr. Petruzzi was law enforcement, why didn't he stop?" Reynolds asked. LoGuidice received a speeding ticket. Petruzzi has not resumed his work as a private investigator because he needs to get his pickup and equipment back, Reynolds said.
