In October of 2005, Orange County Sheriff’s Deputy Adam Pierce was patrolling part of Orlando’s Orange Blossom Trail.
“It was a high crime, high drug area,” he recalled.
At age 25, Pierce was already a six-year veteran of the force. He says he enjoyed the work.
One Monday, he caught a drug dealer in the act, and the suspect tried to flee. Another deputy shot the suspect with a Taser in the right arm.
