Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Here's something we missed in the News Roundup. David Ranck, the Miami-Dade prosecutor who was involved in a bizarre physical altercation with a pizza delivery woman, has resigned. 

The delivery woman was having a hard time getting through security outside Ranck's gated community. After an argument, she told Renck he'd have to come downstairs to collect his pie. She didn't know she'd be collecting a punch in the arm. Ranck was placed on unpaid leave June 1 and is awaiting trial on misdameanor battery charges. 

He sent his letter of resignation to State Attorney Katherine Fernandez Rundle over the weekend. 

Ranck sued Rundle last year in an unrelated incident, claiming he was wrongfully suspended after posting on a blog a private memo complaining about the handling of a fatal police shooting. 

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
