Tampa, Florida Officials said a Florida sheriff’s representative moved to the left before retiring from a deliberate killing of an escaped law enforcement officer.
Cpl. Brian LaVigne, 54 years old, has worked in the department for 30 years and is scheduled to finish the last day of work on Tuesday.

The sheriff said that the House of Representatives detained 28-year-old Travis Zachary Gabriel Garrett on Monday, and multiple charges are still pending.
“He never applied the brakes,” Chronister said. “No slip marks. He drove that car into the corporal’s car on purpose.”
Earlier on Monday afternoon, the delegates were summoned to Garrett’s apartment due to abnormal behavior. According to reports, Garrett dropped furniture and clothing from a balcony in an apartment complex in Brandon near Tampa.
The sheriff said that the congressman talked to Garrett through the gate, but since there was no crime, they cleared the phone.
Soon after, the residents called the sheriff’s office and said that Garrett was naked and was throwing food at the neighbors. Officials said that this time when the House of Representatives arrived, Garrett began to attack them, hitting junior deputy Michael Durig several times.
The sheriff said that multiple attempts to use Taser on Garrett were unsuccessful. Garrett then got in the car. The sheriff said that Garrett hit the back door, crossed two lanes, and deliberately rammed the patrol car marked by LaVigne with the driver’s front.
The sheriff said Garrett “does his best.”
Chronister said that the destructive power of the crash site was so great that the representatives could not immediately contact LaVigne who did not respond.
“He is unconscious,” Chronister said. “They are doing everything they can, from breaking the window to trying to climb in through the rear window.”
The firefighters finally used tools to release him. He was taken to the hospital but died of injuries.
LaVigne’s wife and two children survived, one of whom was also a deputy in the sheriff’s office.
Chronister said: “You can only imagine that they are facing the pain of being only one shift away from retirement.”
