After Flipping-off Cops a FL Lawyer gets Arrested for Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon, Fleeing or Eluding Police, Resisting Arrest and Reckless Operation of a Vessel. Meet Kenneth Carl Wright, an Orlando, FL based… Scroll down to read more!

Meet Kenneth Carl Wright, an Orlando, FL based lawyer.  That’s him below.

 When he’s lawyering Ken practices corporate, business and intellectual property law.

But on Sunday, November 6th, 2016 Ken was not lawyering.  Instead he was allegedly busy recklessly operating his boat on Lake Maitland in Winter Park, Florida.
Winter Park Police responded to Lake Maitland in response to a call that Ken was captaining his boat at a high rate of speed and that he had made several turns nearly colliding with another vessel that was occupied by 3 people (and no, that is neither Ken nor his vessel below… it’s just a demonstrative tool).

Responding Winter Park Police claim that they tried, to no avail, to get Ken to stop several times.  Winter Park Police Officer Galloway claimed that on the first two of the three times that he tried getting Ken to stop what he got instead was Ken’s middle finger, and on the third Ken simply waved at the officer and then drove off.

And so it was that the Maitland Police Department’s marine unit was called in.

Maitland Marine Unit Police Officers report that they too tried to stop Ken but that he sped past them, eventually stopping at a dock, debarking and hitting the pavement running.

As he ran a Winter Park Police Officer claims to have yelled several times for Ken to stop, warning that he would be zapped with a Taser if he didn’t stop.  But Ken didn’t stop, and so he was tasered, rendering his arrest much a simpler task.

In Orange County, FL Criminal Court Case # 2016-CF-014142-A-O, Ken now faces felony charges for Aggravated Battery with a Deadly Weapon (a 2nd degree felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison), Non-Aggravated Fleeing or Eluding Police (a 3rd degree felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison), two counts of Resisting Arrest without Violence (1st degree misdemeanors each punishable by 364 days in jail) and Reckless Operation of a Vessel (also a 1st degree misdemeanor punishable by 364 days in jail).

Memo to Kenneth Carl Wright:  I wasn’t there, I don’t know what actually happened, and I only know that which I’ve read and watched on news reports but I do know this: A) Flipping off the cops may be constitutionally protected under the 1st Amendment but it won’t ingratiate you with either the cops (as you’ve now no doubt learned), the prosecution or the court, B) the rest of your alleged behavior is not protected by anything (except maybe your criminal defense lawyer), C) you’re not only facing 23 years behind bars but your license to practice law is now in serious jeopardy and D) you present much better in a suit and tie than you do in your mug shot.  
Memo to the Folks:  Believe it or not, lawyers are people too.  We, like everyone else, have the same frailties, weaknesses and lapses of judgment.  I am sure that Ken is neither a bad person nor a bad lawyer; rather I’m guessing that he just had a bad day, and even though none of the stories that I saw mentioned alcohol I’m betting that it was a factor.  Why?  Because…
