Crestview Police officer takes stand in Floyd trial

CRESTVIEW   --   A Crestview police officer took the stand today in the racketeering trial of his former major.

Joey Floyd was second in command of the Crestview Police Department until last year.
Today, Sergeant Matt Purvines testified that Floyd ordered him to falsify documents, including incident reports.
  
He also talked about seeing Floyd abuse suspects.
Sgt. Matt Purvines: "There was one incident to where he made the statement that if we ever told anybody about that incident that, uh, we'd be asking people if they want to supersize their fries at like a fast food restaurant, basically indicating we'd get terminated and then he kind of laughed as he just walked out and said, who you gonna tell? The chief? He's my best friend."
 
The chief he's talking about is Brian Mitchell who was also fired last year and who's charged with "Official Misconduct."
  
Floyd's trial is expected to take up to two weeks.
