FDLE: Commissioner's son not a part of prisons probe

Associated Press
Published March 3, 2006

TALLAHASSEE - A Florida Department of Law Enforcement investigation into allegations of misconduct in the state prisons agency isn't delving into two brawls that allegedly involved the son of FDLE chief Guy Tunnell, an FDLE spokesman says.

Bradley Tunnell is on unpaid leave from the Department of Corrections following allegations he was involved in both fights.

Corrections has been conducting an investigation into the incidents, both occurring in connection with employees' softball-related events.

The FDLE is also investigating alleged misconduct in the department, but FDLE spokesman Tom Berlinger said Thursday the fights aren't currently included in the probe. He said he couldn't disclose what the FDLE is looking into.
