A resident of the Starlight Ranch Retirement Community reported that the Hero’s personal vehicle was partially blocking a sidewalk, which is used by senior citizens in wheelchairs. Weiss ran outside to confront the tow truck driver — who recorded the incident on his cell phone.
“I’m a cop — get my truck,” she said.
The tow truck driver asked the frothing-at-the-mouth Hero to put away her gun, which he spotted in the pocket of her shorts.
“You’re going to f*cking jail for stealing my car,” she said.
The incident is now the subject of an internal investigation by the sheriff’s office, although it’s not clear which policies Weiss is accused of violating. Weiss was suspended for 21 hours without pay in 2008 for violating the department’s use of authority policy.
