Cedar Posts has received another dozen emails and posts about Chief Monroe's future son in law who was hired a month or so ago by the CMPD.
As the recurring story goes, he went through the application process but was rejected, so Chief Monroe called and told the academy that he "would" be hired.
Once accepted to the academy your average recruits must wait without pay until the next training class begins, so Chief Monroe "arranged" a civilian job inside the CMPD while the "special" student David McCullan passed the days and weeks until the training class began.
Further the rumor goes, Chief Monroe gave McCullan a take home car.
And not a beat up recycled white pool car with blue stripes either, but a super sweet tricked out 350Z street machine that was seized during one of Charlotte's many street racing sting operations.
To cover the cost of cruzing the dream machine rumor has it that recruit McCullan also had use of a CMPD gas card.
Now that's a take home car perk we all could use.
Apparently the scuttle butt that Mr. McCullan has only Virginia Drivers license and that this license is suspended, is bogus!
According to Channel 36 WNBC's Stuart Watson McCullan's out-of-state license is valid.
Which begs the next question aren't you supposed to have a North Carolina license within 90 days?
Then we have the rumor that said driver burned out the clutch in said tricked out 350z which the CMPD fixed of course, so the paper trail is out there can you say FOA?
Hard to say what is true and what is just water cooler gossip but the drama saga continues...
