LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Former Lee County Commissioner Brian Bigelow is in jail, again. Lee County Sheriff's deputies arrested Bigelow Monday night.
Bigelow faces larceny charges for grand theft less than $5,000, and is being held on a $3,500 bond.
According to his arrest report, deputies responded to the K-Mart on McGregor Blvd. near Winker Rd. in response to a theft. Upon arrival, K-Mart's Loss Prevention Manager told them a surveillance camera caught a young, white male, believed to be 19-year-old David Henley, taking gold jewelry, a calculator, and a cell phone and put it in his jacket.
Henley then left the store, according to the report, and took off in a Gray Jeep Cherokee, allegedly being driven by Bigelow.
Deputies pulled the two over near College Pkwy. and McGregor Blvd. When the deputy approached the car, he reportedly saw Henley drop two syringes on the ground. Deputies said Bigelow became belligerent and argumentative when asked to get out of the vehicle.
Bigelow was placed in handcuffs, and Henley fled the scene. Deputies arrested him a short time later.
Henley faces charges of violating probation, larceny grand theft less than $5,000, resisting officer and possesion of drug paraphernalia.
Henley is accused of taking a gold chain, Virgin Mobile Samsung Galaxy phone, Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Calculator, and other jewelry from K-Mart.
This arrest comes 10 months after his previous arrest, when he tested positive for cocaine.
