Miami Police Officer Michael Juchnowski Fired for Pepper Spraying Taxi Driver
Michael Juchnowski, A City of Miami Police officer, has been fired for a variety of reasons including his part in a bizarre pepper spraying incident on Miami Beach last month. Juchnowski, who lives in Miami Beach, was apparently distraught after his firing, so much so that the Miami Beach police sent out a memo telling their officers to be cautious if they are called to his apartment.
Today, his City equipment was taken from him by the Miami Police Department Internal Affairs Investigator. The investigator requested our agency be notified as the individual was extremely distraught after the firing. Responding officers should use extra caution when responding to the location. PSCU was advised and the address has been flagged to advise any responding officer of the possibility of encountering the individual who is believed to have personal firearms.
