A police officer in Lawtey, Florida has been arrested on felony charges. Kenyatta Sheffield was arrested for two counts of bribery and two counts of receiving unlawful compensation. When Sheffield pulled people over for speeding in Lawtey, which is what most officers in Bradford County spend their time doing, he would allegedly offer drivers a “special” payment option. Instead of paying the fine to the clerk of court, the officer would ask for cash on the spot and allegedly keep it. Over his career, Sheffield wrote about 200 traffic tickets.
