Today’s winner is Craig Lemanowicz. He gets the award for the following.
WEST PALM BEACH — A police officer was ordered held without bail today after his arrest Monday night on charges of armed burglary at his ex-girlfriend’s home, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office.
Craig Lemanowicz, 40, has been a West Palm Beach officer for 16 years, most recently patrolling downtown and Clematis Street on a Segway.
According to the arrest report, he parked his car more than a mile away from her home at the Mall at Wellington Green and rode a bicycle to her house armed with a screwdriver, pocket knife, gun and an extra clip. When he broke a window to get in, a friend at the home and neighbors called deputies.
He was also charged with smuggling contraband into the jail for keeping the three-inch knife on him while he was being booked.
He allegedly told arresting deputies, “My career is over.”
Yes his career is over. What a disgrace Craig Lemanowicz is to the uniform he wears, and I name him today’s Knucklehead of the Day.
