Deputy Suspended Without Pay After Allegedly Masturbating in His Patrol Car

BROOKSVILLE – A Hernando County Sheriff’s Deputy is serving a three day suspension without pay, after allegations emerged that he performed a sexual act in his patrol car while on duty.

An internal Affairs investigation began on April 29th, after a woman contacted RNRF and provided an extensive, sexually explicit text message thread, between her and Deputy Vincent Mascitelli.

The woman making those claims, Stephanie Marasco, tells RNRF that she and Mascitelli met in the early morning hours of October 3rd, in the parking lot of Beacon Theater, located on Cortez Blvd. Marasco says during that meeting, Deputy Mascitelli masturbated in his patrol car while she stood outside talking to him.

Interaction between the two began back in September of 2015, when, according to Marasco, Mascitelli initiated contact with her via Facebook messenger. The two sent dozens of sexually charged messaged back and forth, between September 28th and October 5th, while Mascitelli was on duty. The messages were not only sexual in nature but in one message Mascitelli writes “I’m currently in a relationship that’s not going well… she’s cheating as well… I just want to be honest with you.” In another message Mascitelli writes “LOL as long as we keep it fwb (friends with benefits) and private, even if I’m out with her in public… So are you in or out?”

Investigator John Ellis determined through his investigation that Deputy Mascitelli violated three separate agency policies through his actions; Code of Ethics, Code of Conduct – Unbecoming of an Officer – Neglect of Duty, and Internet/Electronic Communication.

Ellis notes in his report that “The sexual act could not be proved or disproved; however, the mere allegation that this action took placed, coupled with the aforementioned sexually explicit messages lends credence to the legitimacy of the allegations.”

At the conclusion of the report, Ellis writes, “The information Stephanie Marasco provided to the media outlet “RealNewsRealFast” not only brings discredit to Deputy Mascitelli, it also brings shame to the Sheriff’s Office.” He goes on to say, “Deputy Mascitelli’s decision to engage in the activity has the potential to affect the public’s faith and trust, not only in Deputy Mascitelli, but all employees of the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.”

Deputy Mascitelli will be suspended for 24-hours; which equates to a wage loss of about $470, according to officials.

Deputy Mascitelli made headlines in 2014, when he and another Deputy saved the life of a man who was found choking.  He and Deputy Gregory Locke received awards from Sheriff Al Nienhuis for their heroic actions during a ceremony.

  • He must have been down south recently as I heard there was a car jacking there

  • This was not proven yet. We don’t have evidence, and for all of you to jump on this and tear this cop up and ruin his rep. He has several awards and a accomplishments in the news. Why is it that RNRF is the only person picking up this story? Why didn’t he get fired? Do you really think if he did those things on work time that they wouldn’t get rid of him? come on people. Obliviously this woman is trash and I find it so disturbing that you all want him fired or whatever. When will you look at the evidence and not some hoe’s story? For all we know she has been doing this to several people, and its harassment. Grow up. And if you have something else to mention about this cop or his work ethic then keep it to yourself. The only people who don’t like the police are criminals. So if you are or were a criminal, that would make sense you would jump on this. For the grown ass adults who just side with this psychotic woman are just as crazy. If this was all true this would be all over the news and its not. Gullible sounds like oranges when you say it slow.

  • At first I was amazed at all the people defending what transpired here, then I remembered that the world is being taken over by apologists and morons with “safe zones”. Did you actually read this part?

    At the conclusion of the report, Ellis writes, “The information Stephanie Marasco provided to the media outlet “RealNewsRealFast” not only brings discredit to Deputy Mascitelli, it also brings shame to the Sheriff’s Office.” He goes on to say, “Deputy Mascitelli’s decision to engage in the activity has the potential to affect the public’s faith and trust, not only in Deputy Mascitelli, but all employees of the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.”

    How does that scathing review not end in termination? The potential to affect the publics faith in the HCSO is damning. IA hit this guy with 3 bolts of whoopass, “Code of Ethics, Code of Conduct – Unbecoming of an Officer – Neglect of Duty, and Internet/Electronic Communication.” I cannot tell if some of you are trolling or really that ignorant.

  • Bob, also I don’t this guy personally as this is the first I have ever heard of him from the article. I just think everyone is making a big deal over nothing. I think he lacked judgement yes, but hardly a huge deal when you see want else goes on in our town nowadays.

    Wednesday, 22 June 2016, 6:03 am
  • Bob, if you read the whole article it stated he was doing this in the early morning hours meaning middle of the night so there would not be any children around. I am a mother and of course I am not saying it is okay to do this in a public place when children may be around, but if this were any other person other than a cop it wouldn’t be news was my point. It didn’t say he was a pedophile he is just a horny guy! All I was stating was that he masterbated supposedly in his police car which is gross yes, but not exactly the crime of the century. Like I said I’m certain he is humiliated from this story as he used bad judgement, but in my opinion does not deserve to get fired over it it this much publicity. I suppose every person who has ever had sex in the back seat of their car or made out should also be on the news??

    Doneright, I was only stating that all of us as humans have a sexual appetite which is normal. You can not honesty say you have never masterbated as that would be a lie. Everyone grown up has masterbated at least once in their lives. If you don’t have any sexual desire then that would make you A sexual which is not common. I am a woman and I masterbate and enjoy sex, so what I am normal!

  • @luevina. I agree..all these folks are all so perfect..doesn’t even matter what job he has.he’s human! Wether he was a doctor,or a lawyer or whatever,he wld get the same judgment from everyone..no one has anything better to do then to point the finger at someone else..folks,worry about yourselves,bc gods gonna have his turn pointing the finger at you.

    Wednesday, 22 June 2016, 1:56 am
  • Get real..your all gonna say u never flirted via txt on the job..I feel bad that his business got out all out there..I’m sure he’s embarrassed and regrets it..wish this cld have been kept under the radar for his sake..as for her,clearly she’s easy..

  • Sheriff Neinhuis needs to hire older deputies like at least 30.Some of young deputies think they can treat people like crap and bully them because they got a badge now.Citizens need to complain and do a written complaint form when they encounter one of these deputies.A deputy Kling is young and I hear and witnessed this in person with him.Deputy Kling you can see was picked on as a teen and is immature at this job.Perhaps the sheriff should start all deputies in the jail for maturity.Tom,your doing a great job for us citizens and making public officials accountable and also transparent as they should be!!!

  • What happened to integrity in law enforcement? Sadly our sheriffs office is becoming as bad as pasco, where things like this article are a daily routine.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 11:40 pm
  • The texts are quite explicit especially on both parts, however; her a bit more disturbing. Definitely a self esteem problem but, did he really commit that act in the patrol car??? I am not so sure. He should not be texting sexual innuendos while on the county clock, however; it seems as if she may be disgruntled and was thrown to the curb. Maybe, pissed as he was in a relationship which according to the texts he did not want to be found out. I think there should be two sides to this investigation before all is said in done. If he did indeed commit that act where and when she states and it can be proven beyond a reasonable doubt then he should lose his job. Though I believe he will have no choice but, to resign after this publicity. I think maybe she needs to find a single man, not behave as she does and have a little more self respect.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 9:12 pm
  • He should be fired for bringing shame to the Sheriff’s Office and obviously does not have the moral standards and good decision making needed to be in law enforcement. He can’t be arrested because there’s no proof he did anything other than text with a willing partner. There’s no independent witnesses saying he did anything lewd. Based on her texts, it’s unlikely she wasn’t a willing participant if he did masturbate. Don’t know this guys age but maybe the Sheriff should reconsider hiring very young people. There are too many really young deputies being hired and they don’t have the life experience to handle the job. I’d recruit people closer to 30 years old.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 9:04 pm
  • He is only human. Even thou the act can be considered wrong he has to deal with his own morals. Its the system but he is still out there putting his life on the line to protect the world we all live in. Personally i know if the sgoe was on my foot i would have a charge. By the same token i have no right to judge this man.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 7:05 pm
  • Atleast he was not jerking and driving

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 6:54 pm
  • Agreed Bob..if he worked for ups or fed ex and was caught jerking off in company vehicle on the clock he would be terminated. But hcso is above the law..the laws they push on us don’t apply to them. So I guess the sheriffs office is telling people its OK to jerk off in your car in public..since the only punishment is a 24 hour suspension from work..and they can’t suspend us we don’t work for them! So there must not be laws regarding public masturbation.. Or wouldn’t the cop have to suffer same?
    Corrupt

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 6:45 pm
  • What happens to a private. Citizen when they are caught jerking off in their car???..why don’t the laws apply to the cop?

  • This GROWN WOMAN, Stephanie, has quite an extensive ARREST record!
    That in NO way, excuses the deputy behavior while on duty!

  • Did they do a UV light test and check his patrol car for semen splatter?

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 6:00 pm
  • Hmm, the accuser is a felon, her daughter is also. We see small pieces of text messages with no proof that she was truthful in her identity in their Facebook exchange (which ironically she was arrested for before!) annnnd the lady is a 40 something year old bear man pig…. The notion that any deputy would be involved in that is insane. This whole story is clearly ********. Way to go Tom for dragging the SO, a deputy and his family through the mud for someone with a vendetta.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 5:55 pm
  • What a hand job,way to go Spanky,
    How could he come back to work after this,i would not be able to accept a ticket from this guy,i mean you dont know if it has his unborn children on it.all jokes aside i am a tax paying citizen and dont care if he is texting on duty,who dont do that,i do it all day long at work,she was a willing partner so that part who cares,however whacking off in public and in a county issued veichle should be prosecuted as a sex crime he should be fired arrested and a registered sex offender.just like any other citizen.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 5:37 pm
  • He’s only been a cop for 3 years and has countless complaints and all his arrests come with crazy stories like people trying to attack him or push him in front of semi and police chase. He’s full of shit how he’s aloud to be a cop still is amazing literally anyone can be a cop

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 5:35 pm
  • So Realist, what you are basically saying is that this was a vendetta/Setup? You just admitted, she has previously been arrested by HCSO most likely more than once, probably for Prostitution, and she is sick of cops getting away with their actions. She intentionally found a way to get this deputy to initiate a sexually structured conversation. Instead of bringing it to the attention of the sheriffs Office she runs to RNRF. Now, she also met him at his vehicle while he was supposedly masturbating. My guess, she had a hand in that, literally. Now she has proof to get this officer screwed. OK, he was a dumb *** for doing this, and should be terminated, but she should be charged for solicitation for prostitution. Don’t matter if she was paid or not. Her text messages obviously was enough to get this officer excited. Those text messages also had the earmarks of solicitation to engage in a sexual encounter. I am sure he is probably a good man but just like the doctor who was arrested for touching a minor girls buttocks, if you’re gonna play, than you must pay. This is a sad ending to a great career all because of testosterone.

  • Assault with a friendly weapon?

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 5:04 pm
  • OK, so he is being reprimanded . So does she get arrested for Solicitation of Prostitution, because that is pretty much what was going on here? My mother always had a great saying, “It Takes Two To Tango”. He was obviously thinking with the wrong head. Was it worth losing his career for a whore? Tom, how long has this Deputy been with HCSO?

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 2:16 pm
  • Who really gives a crap. All men and women masterbate and I agree he shouldn’t have been doing it on duty if he actually was as this woman doesn’t seem like a valid witness to me. We have all exchanged dirty text messages with our spouses or other and it is only news because he’s a cop. He is a man period! Not that I haven’t done the same being a woman. We all are perverts in some way or another. My guess is his real punishment should come from the woman he says he is in a relationship with already and not the police force or public. Just my opinion

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 2:15 pm
  • 10-13
    and just now……at entry to NYC Holland Tunnel 3 guys arrested

  • And that, my fellow taxpayers, is an example of your tax dollars hard at work – pun intended.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 1:15 pm
  • Tom had the balls to post something bad about a bad cop..don’t think that’s low at all.not all cops are bad but the bad ones neeeeddd tof go. This guy was suppose to be “protecting and serving” instead he’s doing some weird shit at the movie theatre for some little kids to walk by and see. Sounds like it’s personal to you like you know mascetelli or sex offender yourself

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 1:15 pm
  • Realist really. I agree wil you totally. The point of the story is that he was an office on the clock in the uniform and car that are issued to officers that are supposed to be above this!!! If anyone one here was to be found jerking off they would be charged!! Lewd and licivious? Indecent exposure? And extreme stupidity!!! I now know where his hair jel came from. Put a black light in his car and see how much dna is actually there? How discusting! He’s a pig ??????

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 1:05 pm
  • Marshall
    Guess what
    We have never ever seen your sheriff on our side of the county
    Some have never even met the man
    So before you mess up
    Keep him

  • This same deputy mastubator accused family of attacking him punching kicking going “mma style on him” and eveyone got found not guilty on all counts.internal affairs won’t even investigate it.Their response was idk how they got off with it. They only listen to their side of the story.there is alot of corrupt cops in hernando county

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 12:42 pm
  • TOM this one sounds personal like the teacher at Nature Coast. Did this guy give you a ticket or something? You have hit a new low! This is not news,it’s nothing but dirty laundry.No pun intended.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 12:08 pm
  • Sadly he wasn’t caught in the act!!! Any civilian would be in court already and the put in jail !!! Hopefully the HCSD will follow through with this and get rid of this embarrassing person and hire someone who is willing to protect and serve

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 11:48 am
  • What a Dummy. He should be fired for that.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 11:47 am
  • Gross son

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 11:44 am
  • It says allegedly. Maybe he is being set up since there is no proof and this county is political. I don’t trust the higher ups. Do you? Yeah I think shame on them for letting this get out too. I think he is just a pawn or being punished for something pushing someone’s buttons. This is political just like the Trump and Hillary crap.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 11:29 am
  • So how are citizens supposed to trust a police officer with this level of bad judgement?

    The salacious details are not the story, its the lack of judgement displayed by engaging in this kind of behavior by someone entrusted by the public to enforce our laws.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 10:53 am
  • Hey Realist, I know Stephanie personally she is neither a slut or trashy. And she certainly is not defending or slandering everything she said she can prove with her text messages. She wasn’t setting him up he initiated the first conversation and he started the conversation about sexual acts. All you people want to do is judge judge judge why because he’s a cop he can’t do no wrong let me tell you something, he and many of the deputies and Detectives are no good they think they are above the law and that is that. And get your facts straight she never went to the supervisor so there weren’t any so-called attempts and failed. And again she wasn’t hurt are upset over this relationship it was just a two-week thing she’s upset because of the way the sheriff’s department in Hernando County lets the detectives and deputies get away with what they do and enough is enough! But Stephanie, myself, and others who have been arrested are the criminals, right!!!!

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 9:56 am
  • I’m wondering what her motivation for contacting RNRF with the text messages was? If that’s not a woman scorned, what is it? Sad that she was willing to lower herself in order to expose him.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 9:31 am
  • Did he admit to the act or are these purely allegations from a known criminal? I do get it that he texted some slightly naught words during his shift and he is in trouble for it but if thats the extent of his actions then hopefully he just remembers the old leo phrase the badge might get the women but the women will get the badge

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 9:07 am
  • Well,on the other”hand”‘investigator Ellis says this incident can not be proved or disproved.So,on the premiss of being innocent until determined guilty,and due process and all that,if Mascitelli does not vigorously protest this action,well it will be considered an admission of guilt.The Sheriff should terminate his employment and let Mascitelli fight for his reinstatement.Too much at stake for credibility and respect for the sheriff’s office to overlook and dis taxpayers and citizens and also the other deputies……..It will go from”keystone cops”,to the bunch of”jerk offs”…Bout time to man up Al….

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 9:03 am
  • The sad thing about this is if he wasn’t a cop the story would never have been posted. People get in trouble for this all the time and it doesn’t make news. We expect celebrities, athletes, cops etc, to all be superheroes or something and we forget that they are HUMAN! So, he shouldn’t have been doing this on duty we get it…but to talk down on him or the sheriff’s office is wrong and to say comments about “well if he pulls me over I’ll laugh at him” is wrong. So he got caught up in the moment talking to this girl…there is NO PROOF he did any of this except this girls word and she seems…questionable to say the least. How about we start looking at the positive things he’s done while he’s been an officer and all the lives he’s kept safe or ALIVE for that matter.

  • The majority of cops are decent hardworking people. You will find creeps in all professions. Eww I read this while eating breakfast yuk.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 9:00 am
  • Hmmm no wonder the sheriff’s department takes so long to respond to a call (or not show up at all). And as for better things to think and comment about – wake up people these are YOUR first responders in the event of anything (robbery, terrorist attack, etc). Be prepared to protect yourself because the police are not going to protect you. As for he is an embarrassment to the department and he should be arrested because he was breaking the law – if the sheriffs department doesn’t fire him it’s because they are in agreement with his behavior and condone it. WAKE up America!!!

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 8:47 am
  • Well ain’t this the cats @#$! How does this feel all you crackers who blindly support the sheriff’s office? Disgusting!

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 8:24 am
  • This article should be the start of “dirty and shameful” acts the entire county needs to be aware of. He is an embarrassment to the county and to all cops. Funny as you read the comments you can tell who’s a cop and who is a civilian. Yes cops are here to protect and serve not be worrying about their personal relationships on paying tax dollars time. He and she could have the kinky, sexual relationship that most can only dream about, but not on the clock. Why would anyone think it’s ok for him to beat his dick in public, in a county owned vehicle? That is disgusting and if any other civilian was beating their dick in public they would be arrested and charged, then registered as a sex offender… Too bad he was not caught in the act. I am sure the county would cover that up too, they have a nitch for that. I wonder if he was jerking off in his car before he “saved the guys life that was choking”… his entire record of arrests needs to be looked into… He is an embarrassment to law enforcement and the community. He is irrational and not level headed. Someone that does not need to posses a gun, tazor, or right to put anyone in jail. He has embarrassed the Hernando county sheriffs office twice this week. How long will they empoly this liar?

    • TOTALLY AGREE

      Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 9:13 am
  • Vincent macsitelli is no more than a discusting bully. He has no idea how to tell the truth. His cases need to be investigated cause his reports are probably fabricated also. To play with yourself while on the job in your patrol car while the tax payers of Hernando county are paying your salary is unbelievable. How are we expected to respect you!! You should be ashamed of your self!! Ps how does it feel to be the one that is on the internet reading what is being said about you???? You did this last year to a family that was found innocent and acquitted of all charges. You should have practiced your lies better. The vide the depositions and your reports were all different. Enjoy your life. And I or no one I know will ever want to shake your hands again!!! Nasty nasty nasty

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 7:45 am
  • What Deps are gonna wanna work with this creep?(especially females)? Anywhere else he would be shunned.If he ever make an arrest,the States atty would be hard pressed,with his lack of credibility,he is a serious liability.Probably be reassigned,maybe a school safety officer because he’s so “hands on”

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 7:20 am
  • We only fuel things by commenting on this topic. We have people dying, soldiers dying, children dying and this is what gets media attention. Wake up people. It is time to work for the good in this world, none are any better than him by allowing this to be entertainment.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 7:09 am
  • How am I going to take this guy seriously if he pulls me over for a ticket? I don’t want to make eye contact and be the cause of any vinegar strokes.

  • Considering there’s no actual proof he did anything sexual in his car, except text, his punishment is fitting. What ever the relationship between the two it sounds like she was pissed over it and wanted to hurt him. When her “so called ” attempt to his supervisor didn’t work she called on Tom. Personally I think this is a waste of tax payers dollars. This was a personal issue that has been brought to the public. (Extra example) the government getting involved with Tom Brady’s case for his 4 game suspension. This world is out of control

    • I agree with you… no crime, no foul for sexting.
      Lets face it poor judgement.
      And Miss Stephanie has done the perp walk a time or two, the Officer should know that and take heed.

  • Is this a joke, choke your chicken while on duty, patrol car, female accomplish, who the hell are you kidding.

  • tom. any word yet on mr. Robert SANTORO

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 6:39 am
  • I hope if he ever pulls me over that he doesn’t try to go “hands on” with me!

  • can you believe this, why hasn’t this creep been fired? this is a fine example of what is wrong with hernando county, no trust, idiots leading agencies (sheriff) and the entire criminal justice system, don’t hear any more about barbees daughter (thief). I use to be a strong supporter of our sheriff now he needs to go. only when the people of hernando wake up and do something about this will it (ever) get better. anybody from fl dept law enforcement watching this?

  • So this is how we treat our deputy’s now who put their lives in danger everyday. I think it’s a shame that this is what we call news today. You would think we have more important things to worry about. This entire story was told from on perspective and Lord forbid we get the other side of the story. This half-ass “news” report is just like everything else tom lemons has ever post on this news page fake, half truthed trash coming from a wannabe news reporter.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 4:09 am
    • Kendall Raney if you had a brain you would know Tom got his information directly from the sheriff’s department. If you have a problem don’t read it!

  • He seriously needs to keep it in his pants…no one wants to see his junk! 😮

  • To start she was NOT jilted or hurt. After all this came out, she asked Mr. Lemons not to print the story, but IA was already involved. The deputies & some detectives in the HCSO think they can do what they want when they want to. Be above the law. She made a foolish decision that night, what y’all don’t know is she was intoxicated, she came from drinking at Applebee’s when he asked her up there. They both should have known better, him especially cause if he were a civilian, he would have been arrested if caught, but he’s a deputy and thought he was above it.

      • Thank you for clearing up the lies of ………”she’s not jilted”.

  • Jacking off in a patrol car is definitely a suspendable act, hell, it’s criminal! If I was caught jacking my car inside of the road I would be taking the jail wouldn’t I? Public indecency or performing sex acts in public? I agree he deserves a punishment for that.
    But, as far as the text messages go, no he shouldn’t be doing that while he is on duty but I don’t think he deserves any type of punishment for it. How many of us engage in whatever kind of conversations on our phones while we’re at work? Is heat rash for doing it some other trash comma most likely and everybody else is in my opinion without a doubt. But he doesn’t deserve to be fired for that. I think everybody is taking that a little overboard in comparison to what he was physically doing in the car…
    As far as for everybody to condemn him for being a male that is acting out on erotic behavior solicited to him by an obviously slutty & trashy female, I think is a little overboard considering 90% of other guys would have probably reacted similarly if not worse.
    Throw the book at him the jacket in the patrol car but leave everything else out of it. The people on here that are raving about this so probably just jealous that they haven’t been flirted with or anything of the sort by someone else before.
    What really gets me is that this girl’s invective was obviously to slander and defame him in the court of public opinion and the fact that he fell for it so easily lets me know that he probably shouldn’t be one of the officers of law set to look out for the community. If he can’t even see that coming he’s obviously blind to plenty of things that he’s supposed to be looking out for….

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 1:33 am
  • Sounds like he was ‘aiming to please’….just sayin. Real public servant there….smh.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 1:31 am
  • He should be fired.We need a new sheriff who would fire him!!!our sheriff is a joke to keep a deputy masterbating in a patrol car!!

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 1:26 am
  • if i remember correctly when big Al congratulated his pervert employee and shook his hand i seen boss Al looking down at his own hand like maybe there was something on his palm. somethin kinda sticky and stinky ? LMFAO while SMFH

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 1:24 am
  • He should be suspended w/o pay for at least 30 days. Let it hit him where it hurts…his wallet. Then just maybe he will think twice before doing it again.
    As for past charges/complaints against him, this has been made public now, so the Sheriff needs to show integrity and follow through with an unbiased investigation. The public is demanding it. This pervert is revolting and will have no respect from the public…he’s done.

  • lmfao sam, what a “jerk”

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 12:12 am
  • What was her motivation? Lovers quarrel to me. To bad she put this out. He’s a great cop.

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 12:07 am
  • That was good Sam I passed my pants lololololololol

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 12:04 am
  • He should be put on the sexual offenders list, if that was a civilian that did that they would have been, so he get 3 days off ,he will just use paid time off, what a damn joke

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 12:00 am
  • actually Re; currently hysterical – I don’t think Tom was doing the blasting, in this case. Or, if he was assisting, I certainly don’t want to know. Isn’t there a fine for littering or something, too? Illegal dumping?

    Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 12:00 am
  • $470 pay cut and a day off for choking the cannoli, what a sweet vacation, amirite?

    Monday, 20 June 2016, 11:58 pm
  • Tom, this is real news. Sadly, this chick just wanted her 15 minutes of fame. I’m glad this perverted officer was exposed. Now can you please round up the criminals at HCSO. We will be watching

    Monday, 20 June 2016, 11:57 pm
  • Yeah look up Stephanie’s record. She’s white trash to say the least. She’s also a nark. Turns in friends to the HCSO all the time seeking those rewards. LOSER

    Monday, 20 June 2016, 11:55 pm
  • Cops make less than $20 per hour here?

    Monday, 20 June 2016, 11:55 pm
  • Rubbing out crime all over town.

    Monday, 20 June 2016, 11:50 pm
    • doggone,thats funny!

      Tuesday, 21 June 2016, 9:02 am
  • Wow. I really can’t believe he is only suspended for 24 hours. And cops wonder why ppl hate them. Someone else could do the same thing and they will want to throw him under the jail. But oh he’s a police so he just gets a little slap on the wrist! SMH!

    Monday, 20 June 2016, 11:45 pm
  • This should be expose because he is not only a masturbator on duty but a crook cop really post how many complaints he has against him

    Monday, 20 June 2016, 11:40 pm
  • He is very nasty may be that’s why in 2014 I was accused of something I didn’t do I was charged with fleeing elude be a use he had relationship problems ..I always see where he violates people’s rights I was waiting on him to be exposed I reported him to his supervisor he never did a thing but look at him now you can tell in his reports he is a liar just to stay in the force he is crooked he use to harass people all the time lying say in they tried to run into his patrol car he said it about me an I had no reason to I had valid license an insurance then I read he accused another driver by I -75 of the same thing he is a liar he needs to be fired or investigated for every complaint against him he is a crook no honesty an don’t remove this article everyone needs to be aware of him finally

    Monday, 20 June 2016, 11:34 pm
  • he needs to be fired and loss his job if it was any one else they would.
    and this is not cool at all .

    Monday, 20 June 2016, 11:32 pm
  • LMAOOOOO tom you put him on blast. I am literally in tears

    Monday, 20 June 2016, 11:25 pm
  • Stephanie Marasco sounds like an unstable psychopath. Any woman that wants to be choked during sex has unresolved mental issues and that’s coming from experience. This deputy clearly displayed his duty to serve and protect when he was awarded for saving a mans life. This has nothing to do with how he protects the public. I am completely biased as I don’t know either of these two.

    Also, shame on RNRF for publishing this story in this perspective. It really seems that RNRF has interest in dirtying this guys name up. This is not news, this is some guy in a horrible relationship looking to get attention from another horrible woman but is smart enough not to commit to a relationship with her.

    Monday, 20 June 2016, 11:24 pm
  • Disgusting, really 48 hours? Who cares what he does when he is not on duty. But if he did this on duty, what else will he do? Just saying!

    Monday, 20 June 2016, 11:24 pm
  • If deputy masterbation ever pulls me over, im defintly going to go to jail just for joking with his creeper self lol

    Monday, 20 June 2016, 11:22 pm
  • tax dollars hard at work.he should be fired,the last deputy that had sex in his car got fired and aint that also indescent exposure. but ellis probably didnt suggest him fired because ellis is also a piece of shit

    Monday, 20 June 2016, 11:22 pm
  • Dont you just love it. i hope there wasn’t a donut involved, and please don’t let have been a cream horn because that would change my whole out look

    Monday, 20 June 2016, 11:15 pm
  • That is totally disgusting and they should both be ashamed .. He should lose his job , not just be suspended. What people do on their own time is their business , but he is a officer in this county , on duty , being vile and disgusting..Shame , Shame.. And she obviously has no pride and a low self esteem..

    Monday, 20 June 2016, 11:11 pm
  • ?

    Monday, 20 June 2016, 11:10 pm
  • She sounds just as trashy as him. Why did this even make news or why did she report it if she was basically doing the same Via text? Both trash. too many people do not seem to have much respect anymore.
