Former Crestview cop arrested

Published: Friday, October 5, 2012 at 12:20 PM.

 Crestview Lt. Jamie Grant conducted the investigation and determined White’s use of planted pot to obtain a search warrant, signed by Okaloosa County Judge Jim Ward on May 17, 2010, “is sufficient evidence to support a criminal violation.”

Grant determined White may have committed five criminal offenses and four violations of Crestview’s city policy manual.

Purvines, who was interviewed as part of the internal investigation, denied White’s allegations.

He told Grant he believed White was accusing him of intimidation in retaliation for Purvines’ sworn testimony against Floyd.

White has formally requested that his mugshot not be released to the public, which as a former law enforcement officer he is entitled to do.

 As jail director, Lawson can overrule the request. He said he was going to make a determination sometime Friday on whether to release the photo.
