Caplan & Tamburino Law Firm, P.A. Attorney Hillary Parsons recently
appeared on Fox 9 News to discuss a case involving a Farmington City Council
member who is facing misdemeanor charges for allegedly impersonating a
police officer. According to authorities from the Apple Valley Police
Department, the Minnesota councilman was driving in Apple Valley and using
red and blue lights on his vehicle. The man was not arrested, but was
later charged by court summons.
, who is currently representing the councilman, appeared on Fox 9 news
to offer clarification on her client’s side of the story. As Parsons
states, the councilman is a licensed psychotherapist and responds to suicidal
patients and emergencies on a regular basis. His use of flashing lights,
Parsons says, was not malicious and was simply misunderstood by local
authorities, as the councilman was not using the lights to pull motorists over.
The case is still currently pending, and Farmington Mayor Todd Larson has
stated that the man has the council’s full support as the legal
process plays out. As is the case for all, he will have the opportunity
to tell his side of the story, with the help of experienced counsel, and
defend himself against the allegations.
