A man who fled a traffic stop the night of the deadly shootout with law enforcement was recently indicted by a federal grand jury.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis replaced State Attorney Monique Worrell with Judge Andrew Bain. He is a member of The Federalist Society and unveiled his 100-day plan to restore order. “It’s a simple thing,” Bain said. “Simple job.

Monique Worrell, the State Attorney under suspension, claims her suspension is retaliation from DeSantis against counties that voted against him. DeSantis stated that her suspension is due to her work being “clearly and fundamentally derelict so as to constitute both neglect of duty and incompetence.”
