After arresting Scott Conover for “unlawful photography” in Mountain City, Tennessee last June, Johnson County Sheriff’s Deputy Starling McCloud threatened to arrest Conover’s 12-year-old daughter with the same charge after she snapped two photos of her father getting handcuffed.
As it turns out, she is a better photographer than her father because she actually managed to photograph the camera shy deputy.
The fact that she snapped the photos knowing it could get her arrested proves she is a chip off the old block. Her father, after all, is a rabble-rouser who has been a thorn in the side of the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office since moving to Tennessee from Key Largo five years ago.
But what else can we expect from a man born and raised in Miami in a hospital down the street from where I grew up?
