Jeremy Dewitte – a registered sex offender known primarily for impersonating a law enforcement officer while directing traffic for a funeral procession, was arrested by the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday for an Orange County Warrant for violation of probation.
According to the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office Dewitte will face charges in Osceola County for refusing to cooperate and violating further terms of his probation.
in late 2019, Dewitte reached for his gun during a fight with an actual Orange County deputy, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office. Records showed at that time that the arrest was the third time Dewitte was accused of impersonating a law enforcement officer .
In March 2021, Dewitte was arrested during a traffic stop when deputies said he was dressed as a police officer while riding on a motorcycle and carrying a weapon.
Dewitte is a convicted felon and is not allowed to carry concealed weapons and will likely be in front of an Osceola County judge today before being sent to Orange County.
