UPDATE: The Florida State Attorney’s Office has dropped the charges in this case.
COCOA BEACH, Florida – Investigators with the Cocoa Beach Police Department have arrested a FLORIDA TODAY newspaper carrier and charged him with aggravated assault following a shooting that occurred on Thursday, June 4, 2015.
“If any of you are having problems with a horn blower going down your street each and every morning between 5-6 AM, it is the newspaper delivery guy (his route is in Cocoa Beach and Cape). He has dark hair, driving a white car, with a blonde female passenger. DO NOT confront them as the police verified this morning that they are BOTH carrying concealed weapons and can be confrontational. Please, just call it in to CBPD each and every time. He has been stopped several times in the past week alone.”
Despite the complaints that followed on the post thread, FLORIDA TODAY continued to subcontract with Naughale to deliver FLORIDA TODAY newspapers in Cocoa Beach, Florida.
“I only have limited facts at this stage,” said FLORIDA TODAY President & Publisher Jeff Kiel in a FLORIDA TODAY article. “We expect anyone we contract with to conduct themselves professionally. We will fully cooperate with law enforcement.”
