Adam Tavvs, Notorious Ex-Miami Beach Cop, Arrested for Battery and False Imprisonment
There are few details on Tavvs' latest arrest.
Tavvs fatally shot Husien Shehada, an unarmed tourist from Virginia outside a Miami Beach nightclub in June 2009. Surveillance footage showed that Shehada had turned peacefully toward Tavvs with his hands up before Tavvs shot him.
Four days later he shot and killed Lawrence McCoy, an unarmed carjacking suspect on the MacArthur Causeway.
Tavvs was never disciplined, but put on desk duty. He was eventually relieved of service last year when police found marijuana plants growing in his home.
