    Officer Accused Of Threatening Starbucks Managers For Free Coffee - Orlando News Story - WKMG Orlando

    DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. -- A police lieutenant in Daytona Beach was fired over accusations that he threatened slower emergency response times if he was not given complimentary specialty Starbucks coffee drinks.

    An internal police investigation found that Daytona Lt. Major Garvin received free coffee for about two years from a city Starbucks coffee store.

    However, when recently denied free coffee from new management, Garvin allegedly told managers that he could change the police department's response time if they refuse to give him complimentary drinks.

    Garvin is accused of saying, "If something happens, either we can respond really fast or we could respond really slow. I've been coming here for years and I've been getting whatever I want. I'm the difference between you getting a two-minute response time, if you needed a little help, or a 15 minutes response time."

    However, when confronted about the comments, police said Garvin agreed to take a polygraph test.

    When asked whether or not he threatened managers with adverse response times, Garvin responded, "no."

    But polygraph test results suggested that the officer was lying, Local 6's Tarik Minor reported. Garvin was then fired.

    Starbucks employees said Garvin visited the Starbucks store six times a day during his shifts and intimidated some workers during visits.

    "I want somebody protecting my streets who is honest and trustworthy," Starbucks customer Adam Cuddy said. "So, if he is going to fail a polygraph, whether it is about coffee or anything, I don't know how comfortable I feel as a citizen being protected."

    The investigation also revealed that Garvin requested the complimentary coffee even when he was not on duty.

    Garvin was hired by the department in 1993.
    Not the brightest candle on the cake, that's for sure.

    Corruption takes many forms. This could be the tip of the iceberg and it's good he's been weeded out.

    I agree that he was extorting the coffee shop. I just can't believe he could be so stupid in today's day and age to threaten a business owner like he did, and not expect repercussions.

    I am glad that he is off the streets, and hopefully he will never work in a position of public trust again.

    The more I think about this the more it aggravates me. Lt. Major... now we have the Police upper eschelon behaving in a manner that betrays the public trust. The entire department will suffer from the fallout within the community, if it isn't already. What a jackass.

    Pride goes before the fall. When a person feels entitled, they are destined to act in an exploitative manner. He got what he deserved.
    When in doubt, just ask yourself, "What would Theodore Roosevelt do?"

    Jackassery in the First Degree. I hope the State of FL insures that he never works anywhere else as a cop.

    He should have been fired for patronizing Starbucks to strat with even if it was free. I went into one and asked for a cup of plain coffee, no whipped cream, no flavoring, no additives other than the coffee. They would have been less shocked if I had pulled out a gun and ordered them to open the cash drawer. I thought they were going to throw me out for being so unsophistocated.
