LEE COUNTY, Fla. - A Lee County sheriff's deputy was suspended for two weeks and put on probation after pulling over a mother and son while off duty.
The office investigated deputy Anthony Rivera after a complaint came in from a Cape Coral family.
A woman said when deputy Rivera pulled her son over, he was off duty, in a personal car, and wearing plain clothes.
She said the deputy cursed at her son, waived his gun, and left his gun unattended in the seat of his car.
The deputy said he pulled over the family because they were driving without headlights and didn't have a tag.
