A black police chief in Florida has been arrested for soliciting a prostitute and was promptly fired just 10 months into his tenure
According to an arrest report, Miami Gardens Police Chief Stephen Johnson called a number in a "two-girl special" prostitution ad and negotiated a $100 deal for two women for 30 minutes. Only problem: The woman he allegedly paid at a motel was really a sheriff's detective. "The stress overwhelmed me, and I made a very bad decision," Johnson said. He was hired in May 2014 to repair community relations after former top cop Matthew Boyd resigned amid allegations of harassment and illegal tactics.
