A deputy assigned to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School was suspended for sleeping on the job after being caught by a student on Monday evening, according to the Broward Sheriff’s Office.
The student notified a sergeant patrolling the school that Deputy Moises Carotti was asleep in his patrol car, said Veda Coleman-Wright, a spokeswoman for the sheriff’s office.
The sergeant knocked on Carotti’s window to wake him up, she said. Carotti was suspended with pay while an internal affairs investigation is launched.
Two students were also arrested Tuesday for bringing knives to the Parkland school where 17 were killed by a gunman on Feb. 14 and a third is being mentally evaluated for making online threats, the Sun-Sentinel reports.
