|Christopher Vital from local NBC Miami coverage.|
There’s a certain sweetness that comes from reporting on scumbag cops who knowingly break the law while using their badge as a cover. So it’s with great pleasure we bring you the story of Miami Police Officer Christopher Vital, who had a wild night Wednesday night. It started with speeding more than 100 miles per hour down the roads of Miami Beach, peaked with him kicking out the window of a Miami Beach Police cruiser, and ended with him jail. For good measure there were drugs and a suspended license involved.
At around 4:45 a.m., a Miami Beach police officer clocked Vital’s blue BMW speeding in the triple digits. The officer pulled the car over, and noticed that Vital had bloodshot eyes, was slurring his speech, was wobbly on his feet and smelled of alcohol.
A 25-year-old woman identified as Stefanie Malvin was in Vital’s passenger seat.
Police ran Vital’s ID, and realized that he had a suspended license on his record. They then searched his car. They found a plastic container of marijuana, and then a bag filled with individually baggies of cocaine and heroine. Cocaine was also found in Malvin’s purse.
“I just came back to work,” Vital said during the stop. “I’m taking Citalopram for depression.”
Yeah, right. Read more at the Miami New Times.
