SARASOTA, Florida – A former deputy, fired because of his problems with alcohol, is suing the Sarasota sheriff because he claims the office discriminated against him because of his alcoholism disability.
The nine-page federal suit claims Sgt. Clinton Knowles “had begun to suffer from the effects and condition of alcoholism a recognized disability or handicap” under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1992 as well as the Florida Civil Rights Act
Knowles stated that said he didn’t remember the incidents and that he had a “propensity to blackout.”
Wait a second here.Â If this guy wins this case, this might be the most revolutionary move in the history of employment.Â Get wasted, fondle women, get fired for it, call it a disability and get a boatload of cash from your former employer?
Now THAT’s the kind of America I want to live in.
Even More Uncoachable Stuff
