Drunk, Armed, Belligerent State Trooper Trespassed from Local Bar, Targets Bar Owner with Citations

SPRING HILL – No other profession demands a higher ethical standard than those working in law enforcement, and it is incumbent on the officer to live above reproach, both on and off duty. With law enforcement officers already living in a virtual “fishbowl,” it has become even more imperative that they conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times. Those standards have come into question for one Florida Highway Patrol Trooper, after he was trespassed from a local bar for being highly intoxicated and trying to fight with patrons during an incident last Thanksgiving.

The owner of Karma Spirits & Café, Rob Starz, contacted RNRF last November, after he was forced to trespass a Florida Highway Patrol Trooper from his establishment.

According to a Hernando County Sheriff’s Office report. Deputies conducted a security check at Karma, after they noticed a large crowd gathering in the parking lot around closing time.

Hernando County Sheriff’s Sgt. Derik Deso stated in his report that a heated argument was occurring in the parking lot between Florida Highway Patrol Trooper, Joshua Davenport, and several other patrons. Deso asked Davenport to calm down and back away from the crowd but he continued to engage in a verbal altercation, stating “What are you a tough guy, are you gong to hit me?” One of the patrons replied, “You’re a cop, I’m not going to hit you.” Davenport then removed his shirt and stated, “You don’t see a badge on me do you?” Deso intervened and asked Deputy Vincent Mascitelli to escort Davenport away from the scene. Deso also noticed that Davenport was armed with a handgun that was holstered on his hip.

During the investigation, Davenport continued to blow kisses at patrons, in an attempt to instigate an altercation.

Starz asked deputies to trespass Davenport from his bar and he was escorted off the property.

Later that same morning, Davenport contacted the Sheriff’s Office from the Denny’s Restaurant in Spring Hill.

Around 4:00 a.m., Deputies interviewed Davenport but he refused to provide a written statement, and instead, asked a witness to speak on his behalf. Deputies interviewed Davenport’s female companion, Joanna DeJesus, who explained that while they were dancing at Karma, she became involved in a verbal argument with another woman. The dispute escalated to the point of several other patrons getting involved. The argument turned violent, says DeJesus, when one woman threatened her with a beer bottle, and several men tried to punch Davenport but missed. DeJesus also refused to provide a written sworn statement to deputies.

Davenport stated to deputies that he had explained the incident to Deputy Vincent Mascitteli but that “he did nothing about it.” Davenport “jokingly” stated to deputies that “Mascitelli was too busy masturbating to take a report. . .” Mascitelli denies ever having a conversation with Davenport.

Sgt. Deso stated that during his interview with Davenport at Karma, Davenport appeared to be highly intoxicated and made no mention of a crime occurring inside the bar.

At the conclusion of the assault investigation, deputies determined that no crime occurred and the case was subsequently closed.

Starz contacted RNRF again today and advised that Trooper Davenport stopped him in front of his business around closing time this morning. Davenport proceeded to issue Starz citations for not producing a Driver’s License and having a tag light out. It should be noted that Starz’ car has the Karma Logo printed on the back of his vehicle. Starz believes Davenport intentionally waited for him to leave the bar, so that he could ticket him as retribution for bring trespassed.

The Florida Highway Patrol is not commenting on the case at this time but both incidents are under investigation.

We will continue to follow this story and provide updates as they develop.

  • Geez. So many dumb ass comments above. Remember “innocent until proven guilty!” You all have already convicted him as if he went to trial and was found guilty. I think with all the these officers have to put up with today, they are entitled to some down time and stress relief. Is he wrong, maybe, who knows as I wasn’t there and I’m sure most folks above weren’t either. FAKE(or worthless) NEWS! Just like Trump colluding with Russia to win the presidency. Real News Real Fast will grab any story and blow it up to sell advertisement. Even if he was wrong and is fired, that one less officer on the road protecting our asses. I’d rather have a officer that may exercise poor judgement from time to time vs. no officer at all on the road. For those of you who have hung him (or any other officer) out to dry early on, remember my post when you need help, get into an accident, get robbed, shot, or whatever and have to wait longer that you should for help. I’m sure you would welcome someone with poor judgement from time to time help save your life. One less officer on the road to help…………

    • Believe me, I was ACTUALLY there. I would not won’t him “protecting” me. He’s a creep. He was boligerant. There are plenty of people that I would prefer protecting me over this in particular officer. Like I said, I was there. I even know him outside of this situation and laughed my a** off when I head he became a trooper. Seriously don’t even know how he became wine with his track record.

  • Okay so here is what everybody is dying to read:

    The Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA) is a United States federal law, enacted in 2004, that allows two classes of persons – the “qualified law enforcement officer” and the “qualified retired or separated law enforcement officer” – to carry a concealed firearm in any jurisdiction in the United States or United States Territories, regardless of state or local laws, with certain exceptions.

    The LEOSA Act provides for two different categories of LEOSA credentials, 926B and 926C. The qualifications for each of the categories are shown below.

    926B – Qualified Actively Serving

    • Is authorized by law to engage in or supervise the prevention, detection, investigation, or prosecution of, or the incarceration of any person for, any violation of law.

    • Has statutory powers of arrest or authority to apprehend pursuant to section 807(b) of Title 10, United States Code (also known as Article 7(b) of the UCMJ).

    • Is authorized by the organization to carry a firearm.

    • Is not the subject of any disciplinary action by the organization that could result in suspension or loss of police powers.

    • Meets the organization’s standards, if any, which require the employee to regularly qualify in the use of a firearm of the same type (e.g., revolver or semiautomatic pistol) as the concealed firearm


    • Is not prohibited by federal law from receiving a firearm.

    926C – Qualified Retired and Separated

    * Be separated in good standing from service with the DoD component as a law enforcement officer.

    * Before separation, have been authorized to engage in or supervise the prevention, detection, investigation, or prosecution, or the incarceration of any person for any violation of law.

    * Before separation had statutory powers of arrest or authority to apprehend pursuant to section 807(b) of Title 10, United States Code (also known as Article 7(b) of the UCMJ).

    * Before separation, or retraining into a new career field (without apprehension authority), served as a law enforcement officer, or separated from service with the DoD component after completing any applicable period of service, due to a service-connected disability, as determined by that component

    * To carry concealed, during the most recent 12-month period, (1) met the State’s standards for training and qualification to carry a firearm for active law enforcement officers in that state for the same type of weapon as the concealed, (2) qualify using the States LEOSA firearms qualification course, or (3) if the State has not established law enforcement officer firearms qualification standard the instructor will certify the officer has completed the DoD Component handgun qualification course conducted by a state certified civilian firearms instructor using the member’s privately owned firearm and personally procured ammunition.

    * NOTE 1: With the exception of DoD Component firearms training, all firearms qualification courses must be taught by certified firearms instructor through the National Rifle Association, American Association of Certified Firearms Instructors, or be qualified to conduct a firearms qualification test for active duty law enforcement officers within that state.

    * NOTE 2: When carrying concealed the proof of firearms certification cannot be older than 12 months at all times.

    * Have not entered into an agreement with the DoD component from which the individual is separated from service acknowledges he or she is not qualified under section 926C for reasons relating to mental health.

    * NOTE 3: There is no requirement for a mental health examination for separating or separated law enforcement officers seeking a LEOSA identification card.

    * Have not been officially found by a qualified medical professional employed by the DoD component to be unqualified for reasons of mental health.

    * Not be prohibited by federal law from receiving a firearm.

    * Agree that while armed, will not be under the influence of alcohol or another intoxicating or hallucinatory drug or substance.

    • Leosa, excellent . So we can expect his termination immediately. I would also think that the deputy that didn’t arrest him at the time and met with him later, to be reprimanded and all deputies and sherriff to study the laws of the United States and not make their laws up as they go. Bye bye Josh, another scary dangerous criminal off the streets!! Well maybe NOT OFF THE STREETS, BUT NO LONGER A LEO WITH A GUN. 😃

      Friday, 5 January 2018, 5:02 pm
    • Hey, does it say anything about being drunk and violent in your rules there? I don’t think so, so shut up. And this guy is just another typical POS using a badge, he has no honor. That Karma is a shit hole, nothing but bad experiences every time I’ve been there. BTW when closing time comes there is about 20-30 drunk people leaving the parking lot while hernando’s finest sheriff’s officers watch them drive off. But don’t let them catch you down the road somewhere after that cause then they are obligated lmfao.

  • Hey fluff……….sorry but yes it is news! not just bar drama here………and news we need be aware of !!! by way from what little i see in the photo which from behind ( the companion ) is not no special eye candy, but this guy should NOT HAVE A BADGE! DANGER DANGER! and again being it’s illegal to drink and carry fairness need apply to all, as i said earlier in a comment, we do that were in trouble! if keeps hos job hope he doesn’t work hernando co.!

    Friday, 5 January 2018, 2:34 pm
  • I like that the girl is referred to as his companion… since he was cheating on his WIFE. I was there that night, and I questioned him on his intoxication & his “companion” seeing as he is married. He blew it all off. He tried to get my friend to dance on him (while he sat in a chair) and even tried to kiss her. He was extremely boligerant. It’s really sad because anyone that knows him, knows he was raised better than that.

    Friday, 5 January 2018, 11:18 am
    • Not to mention, he tried to fight people that looked at his “companion” too much. He tried to get several girls to dance on him or dance with his “companion”. It was so gross.

      Friday, 5 January 2018, 11:29 am
    • Wow just wow, IF he does have a wife, if she is smart, he would be out the door, hope their are no children at home too. Drunken trooper with a gun, cheating on his wife , sounds like he has a sexual problem as well!! Disgrace to the leo everywhere And he still has a job. Wonder what else he is capable of, hope no pretty young girl gets stopped by this piece of scum!! Hey compsnion, you must be pretty hard up to mess with this dirtbag, Careful what you cheat with, you might end up with him.

      Friday, 5 January 2018, 12:32 pm
  • From personally knowing josh, even in a sober setting, he definitley is an arrogant prick who thinks hes above everyone else….he doesnt deserve a badge

    Friday, 5 January 2018, 9:55 am
  • Beer bar drama non story. More gossip than news.

    Friday, 5 January 2018, 2:18 am
    • How is this not news? This man is being entrusted with our safety. In certain situations our lives could, potentially, be in his hands. He was respected enough and considered to be of moral turpitude in order to get the position he has. He has proven that he does not deserve that respect or to be considered morally sound in any way. To me that’s news, it’s news that we need to address hiring process and what it takes to become someone in his position. With the power that he has over others. And perhaps, we will find there needs to be an overhaul.
      Somewhere, something is not being caught on these applications for a position in law enforcement. From the sounds of this, this man doesn’t hide his arrogance or his better than thou personality . Nor does he hide the fact that he uses his badge and power to intimidate. Which is totally unacceptable. That makes for great local news…thank you Tom and Rob Starz for brining this to the forefront. This should not and can not be brushed under the carpet, now that the NEWS is here for all to be informed.

  • How can this even be questioned.Drinking while carrying weapon guilty as NOT charged.Please note this so the next time a citizen walks into a bar with a gun he will not be charged.Fair is Fair………..

    Thursday, 4 January 2018, 1:27 pm
  • so funny seeing all the comments from people who have been arrested or ticketed by FHP and are salty..

    Everyone wants him arrested? for what? for “almost” getting into a fight outside a bar? serious? You know how many times a fight happens at a bar i am at and everyone goes outside. I have never seen anyone arrested for yelling etc…

    He is an FHP officer, he is required to carry his firearm, did he threaten with it? Did he display it? but he should be fired for having it.. hahaha

    God, people are so freaking stupid.

    Thursday, 4 January 2018, 11:42 am
    • he hit someone with a beer bottle!

      Thursday, 4 January 2018, 12:31 pm
    • According to the Officer the guy had just been tossed from a bar and still beligerent. He had a handgun and should have been disarmed. He was even mouthing off to the Officer. Next time, try that scenario and see how long it takes for you to be arrested.

      Thursday, 4 January 2018, 12:59 pm
    • He was drunk instigating a fight. He at least committed assault. There is a reason drunks aren’t supposed to have guns. If he would have lost that fight that he started, what do you think he would have done? At 4am at denny’s (LOL) he’s still angry about it.

      I have huge amount of respect for law enforcement, but this guy is ridiculous and you’re beyond help standing up for this behavior.

      Thursday, 4 January 2018, 1:05 pm
    • being an officer or not……….if he was drunk then he had NO business carrying a gun

      Thursday, 4 January 2018, 4:28 pm
    • He was OFF DUTY DRINKING IN A BAR!! He should not have been armed. PERIOD!

      Thursday, 4 January 2018, 4:31 pm
    • What??? Lol off duty officers are not required to carry… They are especially not required to carry while getting trashed in a bar..

      Thursday, 4 January 2018, 4:54 pm
    • @so funny, you must have us confused with yourself, personally never had a ticket for anything, or been stopped! Stupid would be what trooper did and stupid is you defending this dangerous out of control drunk trooper with a gun. So stick it where the sun don’t shine, u r probably the drunk trooper or his “worman”commenting.

      Thursday, 4 January 2018, 6:23 pm
    • No not for getting in a fight in a bar how about carrying a gun in a bar while off duty and intoxicated. Oh how about one of them had to drive out of there and they were both intoxicated. Need an other reasons.

      Thursday, 4 January 2018, 11:32 pm
    • No gun while drinking my friend.

      Friday, 5 January 2018, 8:24 am

  • I worked with this SOB ( NOT as a Trooper ). We all need to contact the GOVERNORS office and ask him why one of his STATE TROOPERS gets away with this, Davenport works for the STATE of FLORIDA. Unbelievable we have young ASSHOLES like this. His career should be over as a LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICER FOREVER!!!!!

    Thursday, 4 January 2018, 2:11 am
  • I wonder if Tom will be pulled over tomorrow and ticketed…….:(

    Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 9:52 pm
  • Davenport you are a disgrace to law enforcement but HCSO covered your ass and not arresting you for disorderly intoxication you are worthless to the badge

    Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 9:47 pm
  • If the”powers that be” wanted to make an attempt to gain back much of the lost confidence in law enforcement by members of public, here’s a perfect chance.
    This officer needs to be dealt with to the full extent of the law (along with the professional ethics broken) and made an example of.
    Not only would this help to build beliefs back up that the public seems to have lost with many LEO. It will also send a message to other “law officers” who frequently use “the badge” as a “boost” for their ego!

    Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 8:29 pm
    • Exactly

      Thursday, 4 January 2018, 7:27 am
    • They had their chance when Mascitelli was found to whacking off,on duty in a patrol car.So many reasons to fire him

      Thursday, 4 January 2018, 7:36 am
  • Sounds like typical cop behavior. They think theyre above the law and can do what they want. Doesnt help that they usually get away with that behavior.

    Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 8:03 pm
  • A lot of these young stupid cops have god complexes and think they are abov the law. Sad because it gives the good ones a snotty reputation. Fire this POS trooper

    Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 7:54 pm
  • This is not about Karma letting ppl leave while drinking . can’t hold someone hostage.
    This also isn’t about officers parked around the establishment…
    That would be when you call Allison’s car service and pay $10 to get home.
    I never understood ppl highrolling buying shots with a $50 tab and won’t call a cab..
    Whatever happened with that officer is none of my business. No opinion on that..
    Just everyone hiding behind a keyboard smearing a well run bar drive me nutts..

    Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 7:18 pm
    • Says the man who is known to do cocaine in the kitchen of his bar. I hate JERSEY’S HOMETOWN because of the drugs you allow in there. Let’s make this about you and the druggies you serve, Evans. Your place sucks and is not well run. I won’t go into Karma because I have heard it is being watched.

      Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 7:42 pm

      • Hey Jewels, Why dont u tell people your real name? LINDA

        Friday, 5 January 2018, 11:00 am
      • @jewels… I have been to Jersey, here and there over the past 6 yrs and never ever have I seen or heard any thing of the sort. I have had drinks with Evans and others and spent enough time sitting there with them to know if people were doing such activity. Sounds to me like you have an ax to grind or your just another jealous hater who just can’t stand to see people having a fun time and succeeding in running a business. So let me ask you one question…habe you been to any, similar, establishment that you didn’t see this happening at? Or, are you saying, all the bars in the area are doing this same activity?

        Friday, 5 January 2018, 1:15 pm
  • Well as far as I can see it as long as you have badge there’s no problem . But if it was a command person your going to the slammer. It’s not you know .its if you got a badge you don’t go to jail. I wonder how many times this has happen they get off with nothing.

    Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 7:09 pm
    • Veteran, it happens ALOT in nature coast (hernando, citrus, levy). In floral city (citrus co.) a sheriff’s officer off duty driving drunk almost had a head on collision with an on duty officer. When on duty found out it was a colleague he called supervisor who called off duty’s wife to come pick up hubby the drunk then had an officet drive drunk’s car home too. NO FIELD SOBRIETY TEST DONE, NO TICKET, NO CHARGES!!! For the final joke on taxpayers they put mr. Drunk on teaching children about SAFETY at his same pay rate!! The sheriff at the time was jeff dawsy.

      Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 10:03 pm
      • Oh I’ve seen some .. Right here in brooksville.. I have absolutely no respect for the cops out here.. They all a joke.. and I have seen firsthand how they will do anything they have to do to cover each other’s backs I’m just going to leave it at that

    Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 7:03 pm
    • It’s really rather simple don’t drink and drive. It’s not the establishments fault your friends are being irresponsible, or that there is highway patrol near one of our main intersections.

      Thursday, 4 January 2018, 7:19 am
    • Ummm its not karmas fault your friends are idiots who decided to drive….if you cant afford a cab, you cant afford to drink dipshit

      Friday, 5 January 2018, 9:36 am
  • Sounds like he or his “lady” were most likely driving drunk when they left. What? No arrest for that either?

    Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 6:50 pm
  • but karma lets drunks drive away from his bar. smh

    Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 6:38 pm
    • No we don’t. I personally have driven people home if I think they are not capable to drive. I have even gone so far as to flatten tires of a lady that drove here from another bar and we refused to serve her. By law I can’t stop anyone or else I can be charged with battery (just grabbing them to stop them from getting in a car) We pay for taxis for people all the time. Some times people have a little bit too much fun. We are human but we watch out for people. Good Karma to all.

      Thursday, 4 January 2018, 5:08 pm
      • Rob and Leslie Starz treat their patrons like one big family. I have seen them store a motorcycle inside the bar (after closing) just to make a gentleman comfortable about leaving his bike over night. LOL They look out for everyone and are very observant and aware of any thing negative or potentially dangerous going on inside their fine, friendly, fun and safe establishment. As a single woman, I have never felt unsafe or concerned any time I have been there. In fact, if I do go out for a friendly, fun and safe night out Karma’s is the only place I go to. Thank you to the STARZ for providing such a place…thank you for Karma’s.

        Friday, 5 January 2018, 1:27 am
    • Are you a fuckin idiot…or just stupid….blaming karma for what grown ass adults decide to do….i hope you melt snowflake

      Friday, 5 January 2018, 9:39 am
  • from what I recall, being armed and intoxicated is a felony. Why is nothing being done to this unqualified trooper? He has failed ethically and morally by being intoxicated with a service gun on his side.

    Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 6:07 pm

      Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 7:12 pm
  • AND this is why society doesn’t trust the police!!!! This is retaliation!!! 100% as obvious as it can be!!!!! Ridiculous!!!

    Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 6:07 pm
  • This trooper needs to be drug tested right along with his buddies. Why was he not arrested for having a gun inside of the bar? With the animosity between HCSO and our troopers, I’m shocked that this fellow wasn’t thrown in jail where he belongs. I know for a fact that Karma is being watched by troopers and deputies. When people are there, get messed up and are stopped, those people talk. I know, I was present when a conversation came up about Karma with troopers. This trooper doesn’t do his job well. I can promise you that this trooper does think he is above the law and he steals drivers licenses from drivers who have not been cited, costing them money to get their licenses replaced. I’ll bet there are a stash of drivers licenses somewhere. Check out Josh’s house and they may be found.

  • Second response:must have been censored—-You gotta be me.This guy takes off his shirt,wanting fisticuffs,wearing his sidearm,drunk,and no arrest,suspension,firing,WHAT ? No wonder,jerk boy Mascitelli,who has no credibility,was there.If this was Pasco with sheriff Nocowhat do you think would happen ? I know right?

    Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 5:54 pm
  • I wonder if this is the same state trooper was writing warnings about driving w/o head lights 20min after published sunrise. I got pulled over by Wal-Mart market and then he did another in the Wal-Mart gas station for the same reason. I said it’s plenty of daylight. ” It’s up to my discretion and I say there’s not enough light”

    Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 5:41 pm
  • You gotta be shi**ng me.He takes off his shirt,wanting fisticuffs,drunk,with his side arm clearly visible,and he’s not arrested,suspended,or fired?Something is very wrong with this picture,and the fact that “jerk boy” boy,
    Mascitelli was there with zero credibility makes you wonder.Would this scenario ever happen in Pasco under sheriff Noco?…..what the hell do you think……

    • The “no bar rule” is for concealed licensees and does not cover law enforcement.

      Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 7:20 pm
      • It covers law enforcement when they aren’t on duty and drinking in such establishment!

        Thursday, 4 January 2018, 12:48 am
      • From what I understand law enforcement is allowed to bring guns into a bar IF they are on duty and conducting an investigation however if an officer is off duty, especially one that is drinking, they are subject to the no bar rule.

        Thursday, 4 January 2018, 2:48 am
        • Show me the statute!!!

          Thursday, 4 January 2018, 11:32 pm
          • LEOSA was kind enough to list it above. The trooper broke the law and should have been arrested and lose his job.

            Saturday, 6 January 2018, 1:07 am
  • well Starz took the first punch by contacting RNRF….I guess he is getting his KARMA

    Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 5:09 pm
  • Why is this idiot still on duty and not terminated. Only in Florida and Hernando County for not locking him up. Where is sheriff Al?

    Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 5:00 pm
    • He is a state trooper. Not a county deputy. The sheriff can not fire him. L

      Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 7:02 pm
      • Maybe not, but hcs deputy COULD HAVE ARRESTED HIM!! HE IS A LOOSE CANNON.

        Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 8:16 pm
  • How did they get home that night or any night they were drinking?.

    Wednesday, 3 January 2018, 5:00 pm
  • “Davenport was armed with a handgun that was holstered on his hip.”
    That right there is breaking the law..
    If you have witnessed this guy in the bar at the time of the altercation and he was drinking then he broke the law…
    IF that was me I truly believe I wouldn’t be commenting on this today. Obviously he and many others around here are above the law…

    • He should lose his ability to carry a concealed weapon because he brought it in a bar.

      • When you have a concealed carry permit you are bound by certain rules, breaking those rules can and should result in losing your privilege to CC. He broke not just the rules, but the law. There’s a really good reason people shouldn’t be going into bars and drinking with guns.. I mean a fight did break out.. that’s a potentially deadly situation. And as an officer he should have known the law. Why should he not be held to the same standards he would hold other’s too?

  • Nothing happened in November to this trooper for being drunk and causing a scene? I know another trooper that is nothing but trouble. Some people should never have been allowed to wear badges and this trooper is an example of that.

  • I’m as pro law enforcement as they come. But, this could (and probably should) be career-ending.
