Officer’s License Suspended Following Crash

The drivers license of former Altamonte Springs police officer Mark Maupin was suspended following a hearing in Orange County court on charges of failure to wear a seat belt and failure to use due care. Maupin and his attorney challenged the two traffic tickets that he received as a result of a traffic accident in which his vehicle allegedly struck a car driven by Erskine Bell, Jr.

It was determined through investigations by the Altamonte Springs Police Department and the Florida Highway Patrol that the patrol car driven by Maupin was traveling at a speed greater than 100 mph when he crashed his vehicle. Bell remains in a coma since the accident. His family, strapped with medical bills, settled with the city of Altamonte Springs earlier this year for $2.1 million.

Maupin who was also injured in the crash was placed on medical leave, later resigned and is no longer with the police department.
