Miami Herald’s Joan Fleischman reports WPLG suspended Jeff Weinsier for two weeks “for violating company policy by carrying a gun without permission”. As reported by WPLG’s Rad Berky on Thursday, Post-Newsweek allows employees to carry concealed weapons only with permission from the company.
Weinsier sent an email to colleagues apologizing for his “poor judgment” and saying that he never brought the gun to the newsroom.
The article also says that WPLG “management agrees” he had the right to be on the school sidewalk. His attorney filed a not guilty plea.
