Florida officer’s SIG Sauer lawsuit
Bob Northrop is a decorated veteran and was a Tampa, Florida police officer for 30 years. After returning, he was a reserve officer for 19 years. He was about to become the longest-serving officer for the city of Tampa.
But then his career came to an abrupt halt on February 27, 2020.
Northrop was working an extra-duty job at a high school, patrolling school sporting events. He was walking the ball fields at Jefferson High School and began to attach a set of keys to his service belt. When his hand brushed his holster to attach the keys, his SIG Sauer P320 pistol fired by itself. There were dozens of students just feet away.
The bullet blew apart the bones in his leg and ankle and he required surgery, screws, rods and lengthy rehabilitation. Northrop remained in the hospital for weeks after the accidental shooting.
