The Tampa police officer who was involved in a DUI arrest of a lawyer Phil Campbell got temporarily reassigned Wednesday pending an FBI investigation, according to TPD officials.
Sgt. Ray Fernandez pulled Attorney Phil Campbell over last January and arrested him on suspicion of DUI. On Monday, prosecutors dropped the DUI charge because they believe the lawyer was set up.
