Florida Criminal Defense and DUI Defense Blog

A few weeks ago, a friend and colleague who lives and works in rural Oklahoma reached out to me for help. It seems a friend of his had been arrested at the Jacksonville airport by employees of TSA.

Not for smuggling contraband. Not for terrorism. For battery. On a TSA employee.

It seems my colleague’s friend grabbed the arm of a passing TSA employee, in order to point that employee to the spot on the airport terminal floor where a stricken traveler lay having a seizure or heart attack.

Of course, nobody messes with TSA and gets away with it.

I need the help of the best lawyer you know in Jacksonville, my colleague urged. Somebody who is not afraid of TSA or the Federal Government.

Of course, I connected my Oklahoma friend and colleague with my friend and Jacksonville colleague, legendary defense attorney Russell Smith.

This morning, Russell let me know that all criminal charges against the Oklahoma good Samaritan have been dismissed.

As a lawyer, what you know really matters.

Sometimes, who you know matters, too.
