Reported last week on WLBT! 24 yr old Brandon Police officer, Justin Flanagan, plows his truck into a house located in Pearl Ms, moments later a car pulls up with a pregnant female driver, the female swaps places with the officer, the officer jumps into the car & flees the scene of the accident. Eyewitnesses saw the wreck, one eyewitness saw the swap & told police. Pearl Police dept cited the Brandon officer for no insurance & expired tag but left it up to Brandon Police Chief Ken McBroom "to handle this as a personal issue". WHAT??? Pearl Police DID NOT charge this officer for fleeing, left it up to the homeowner who is disgusted with the whole process. Officer paid a $200 fine and is now reported as no longer an employee of the BPD.

I do not understand why PPD did not charge this fellow officer for fleeing. Where are the homeowners rights? From what i have seen, these types of actions are likely normal for Brandon city cops. Many are young and hotheaded; they speed around like they own the roads. WITHOUT LIGHTS OR SIRENS! I am confident this cop ran for a reason. Possibly intoxication? Just another cop getting away with things most citizens could not.
