John Chestnut Park in Palm Harbor,Florida closes at 6pm. Last Tuesday, Pinellas County Deputy K, Baldwin approached a man in the park who was there after the park closed. The Deputy, preparing to issue a trespass warning, asked for his name.
The man in the told the Deputy his name was “Ben Dover”
Mr Dover, gave the cop the middle finger and got in the deputy’s face “as if he was going to hit him.” The man then fled on foot, but was apprehended after a short chase.
Dover (gasp) was not his real name. His real name is (horns blowing)
Andrew Leighton. The 22 year old is a Palm Harbor resident.
Mr Leighton, was charged with obstruction by a disguised person and resisting an officer both misdemeanors. After posting a $300 bond, he was released from the Pinellas county jail. It’s a good thing Andrew Leighton IS his real name, Ben Dover could be problematic in Jail. (Just Sayin)
