Miami cops caught napping on the beat, photo posted to social media

 

With spring breakers partying all night, it seems like no one gets enough sleep during spring break in Florida.

Well, except for two Miami Beach police officers, who were caught snoozing on the job. 

Officers Grettel Monge and Pedro Gonzalez were on duty when they were photographed at 4:30 am dozing in a patrol car with their heads back and mouths wide open, according to the Miami New Times.

An anonymous person going by the name “Joe Citizen” sent the newspaper a slew of photographs Wednesday showing the officers sleeping in their squad car during the early morning hours. 

The photographer told the New Times “this is a nightly occurrence on the beach at night.” 

Miami Beach bars usually remain open until 5 a.m.

The Times showed the images to the Miami Beach Police Department, which said “these allegations are taken very seriously.” 

The department’s Division of Internal Affairs is investigating, media outlets reported.

Isolated storms still possible as front moves over Central Florida

After warm days, a front is pushing through Central Florida, sparking some showers and isolated thunderstorms.

The front does not carry much of a cold air mass, but it is enough contrast in temperatures and humidity that it could initiate shower activity this afternoon and even some scattered thunderstorms.

“After a stormy morning, showers are still possible this afternoon. Please be mindful of lightning today,” said Channel 9 certified meteorologist Brian Shields

Some of these isolated storms could also produce gusty winds and small hail.

                                           DOPPLER 9 - TRACK THE STORMS

On Wednesday early evening, two storms quickly developed north of Orlando. They produced small hail captured by viewers. These storms popped up because of the heat accumulated in the afternoon, humidity and the sea breeze moving inland.

If you are traveling to south Florida, the storms are more likely to affect that region on Thursday afternoon and have more coverage.

After the front clears Central Florida, expect highs on Friday in the upper 70s, with low humidity and breezy conditions. These factors will elevate the fire risk, so please make sure you exercise caution if doing any activities involving fire.

Marine conditions will be rough through Saturday. A small craft advisory is in effect for the coastal and open waters along our eastern beaches until Saturday morning. High surf advisory in effect through Friday afternoon  due to the windy conditions, seas up to 7 feet and a high risk for rip currents.

                                              MARINE CONDITIONS

The forecast looks to stay rain free through much of the weekend. Sunday, there is a very small chance for light showers as the humidity slightly increases after the winds change on Saturday and enough humidity streams in from the Atlantic.

Our team of meteorologists will be tracking any shower development Thursday afternoon live on Channel 9 starting at 4 p.m.

Mini cow lives dog’s life

An Arkansas animal refuge has an animal that may be a bit confused as to her species.

Moonpie, a baby miniature cow, lives with a dozen dogs, and she thinks that they’re her friends, The Dodo reported.

Before she found her home at Rocky Ridge Refuge, an animal shelter for animals with special needs, she was for sale at auction.

A friend of sanctuary owner Janice Wolf saw Moonpie and knew she’d be the perfect fit at Rocky Ridge.

When Moonpie got to her new home, she was too young to live outside with other rescue cows.

Moonpie ended up moving into Wolf’s bedroom, and she’s been there for more than six weeks, living alongside Wolf’s rescue dogs, The Dodo reported.

A deaf white terrier named Spackle has become attached to Moonpie, protecting her and bonding with the bovine.

Other dogs in the pack help clean Moonpie as if she was one of their puppies.

Moonpie is also picking up some canine habits, including waiting to go out to relieve herself.

For more on Rocky Ridge Refuge, including Moonpie and the other rescues living there, visit the sanctuary’s Facebook page.
