ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) — Three months after an aspiring Florida chef was honored at the White House, he’s in an Orlando jail facing an attempted murder charge.
In July, Johnny Brummit was invited to speak during the one-year anniversary of the Trump administration’s Pledge to America’s Workers, which encourages companies to provide education and training.
Orange County Sheriff’s officials say 20-year-old Brummit became involved in an Oct. 17 dispute between a girlfriend and a bus station security officer. They left, but returned with the woman’s stepfather, who allegedly shot the guard several times, seriously injuring him.
Brummit has been a prep cook at the Aloft Hotel. Now he’s being held without bond.
General manager Craig Leicester tells the Orlando Sentinel they’re “devastated” by Brummit’s arrest.
