PINELLAS PARK – An off-duty police officer contacted Pinellas Park police Feb. 16 about threats being made against a Pinellas Park police officer.

According to the off-duty officer, a subject by the name of Bruce Allen Santee II of St. Petersburg was voicing his opinion about a traffic stop that occurred in Pinellas Park. Santee reportedly made several disparaging remarks to include assaulting our police officer.

“Santee finished his Facebook post by offering $100 to anyone who will kill our officer,” according to a press release from Pinellas Park PD. “We are not releasing the name of the officer at this time however, Santee did call the officer by name and offered the money to kill the officer, identifying him by name.”

Santee responded to the Pinellas Park Police Department at about 3:30 p.m. Feb. 17. He was arrested for written threats to kill or do bodily injury.

Police said Santee’s actions were a violation of state statute 836.10 which states, “Any person who writes or composes and also sends or procures the sending of any letter, inscribed communication, or electronic communication, whether such letter or communication be signed or anonymous, to any person, containing a threat to kill or to do bodily injury to the person to whom such letter or communication is sent, or a threat to kill or do bodily injury to any member of the family of the person to whom such letter or communication is sent commits a felony of the second degree.”

Santee was booked into the Pinellas County Jail. Bond was set at $10,000.
