The Florida Commission on Ethics has agreed Friday morning to dismiss a complaint against Fort Myers Police Chief Derrick Diggs.

Last year the commission found probable cause that Diggs misused his city purchasing card.

The commission’s report details purchases for meals, boots, and a satellite radio subscription, among other purchases.

The complaints filed against Diggs also accuse him of using his city purchasing card on extravagant dining and alcoholic beverages.

The Attorney Advocate for the commission recommended the complaint against the chief be dismissed based on the lack of any evidence of corrupt intent or improper use of office.

The motion to dismiss the complaint was unanimous and officially cleared him of all
allegations, concluding the matter.
