Dean McWhorter
Troop D (Orlando)

Congratulations for being selected as the Florida Highway Patrol Civilian Employee of the Quarter from January thru March of 2010.

When Court Liaison Dean McWhorter walked into a Subway restaurant to get some lunch, the manager was asking a sleeping man to leave the shop. As Dean waited to place his order, the man returned and attempted to throw a chair through the glass window. Dean then told the man to leave and an employee followed while calling 911 for assistance. Lt. Michael Roden was driving by in his patrol car and the employee flagged him down. Lt. Roden confronted him and was struck by the man’s backpack.

Dean then rendered assistance to Lt. Roden as he utilized his pepper spray in an attempt to place the man under arrest. As they struggled with the man, Lt. Roden asked Dean to get on the radio and call for backup. The man was arrested and charged with Battery on a Law Enforcement Officer.
