Deputy Jon Dobson is dispatched to a domestic violence call. He arrives and while approaching the house he hears loud voices. Deputy Dobson knocks on the door and a male in his underwear and a female in basketball shorts, exit the house. Questioning both, the male says it was an argument about his infidelity. The woman claims the argument was her fault. She says she is seven months pregnant and hormonal. Investigating further, deputies find out the male forcibly restrained the female on bed. The male is arrested for domestic violence. The female doesn’t want him arrested and claims he was just hugging her. Deputies tell the female they are obligated to arrest male. She states she will attend his arraignment to plead his case.
|Agency||Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office|
|Station/Area Command||North District|
|Why Law Enforcement||I was studying Criminology in college and did several ride-alongs with a friend in Law Enforcement for extra credit. Seeing what happens everyday in the eyes of a police officer I knew thats what I wanted to do.|
|First Arrest||I conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle for having an expired registration. The driver had a permanently revoked driver’s license for numerous DUI’s in his lifetime but still begged me to let him go with a warning.|
|Best part of the job||Everybody says law Enforcement is the front row to the greatest show on Earth which it really is. Everyday there’s something new and something that always makes me laugh (even though the everyday citizen may not think it’s funny).|
|Hobbies||My wife and I love to travel. We’ve been to numerous places in Europe and practically all over the US, and we still have places on our list to check off!|
