    Fired Miami Beach cop gets job back after blaming cocaine test on sex-aid cream

    After Miami Beach police Detective Reinaldo Casas tested positive for cocaine, he insisted that the drug had been unwittingly absorbed into his blood through an erection-enhancing cream he applied to his genitals.

    His defense worked.

    An arbitrator this week ordered Casas, who was fired last year because of the positive drug test, be reinstated with complete back pay.

    “There is no evidence in the record to show that [Casas] was aware the cream contained a controlled substance,” according to the arbitrator’s report, which was released Thursday.

    By law, Miami Beach police must comply with the ruling. The decision caps an embarrassing saga for Casas, who was a respected homicide investigator when he was fired in February 2013. Casas had failed a random drug test administered by the police department.

    “Having never knowingly used cocaine, I was baffled, perplexed and confused,” Casas wrote in his grievance.

    At a grievance hearing, Casas testified that a buddy, Idilio Godinez, gave him the cream “with the advice that it would help him in his sexual liaisons.”

    Godinez testified that he got the sex-enhancement cream from “an old Cuban guy” as a gift for giving him some political campaign signs. Godinez claimed he did not know what was in the cream, but had tried it himself and it worked.

    The substance, which resembled Vaseline, was contained in a series of unmarked purple containers and appeared to be homemade.

    The city insisted that Casas’ story was “incredible” and he should have known what he was applying to his body. The arbitrator disagreed and ordered Casas returned to duty with back pay. His salary is $74,745.84 a year.

    Eugene Gibbons, a lawyer for the Miami Beach police union, said the arbitrator “rightfully concluded” in Casas’ favor.

    “Detective Casas is looking forward to resuming his distinguished law-enforcement career with the Miami Beach Police Department in the homicide unit and putting this unfortunate situation behind him,” Gibbons said.

      He will probably end up suing the dept from all the harassment he is going to get.

            This is a hard one to call. Being a Miami Detective, one would think he'd be at least a little bit cautious with the Cuban Love Potion #9. I am sure he will be facing some stiff ridicule over that one for sure. It was really a boneheaded thing to do if you think about it. The real question is, willy still want to hang around there after this embarrassment?

            Ok I'm done.. someone else take over

              He may have gotten some pleasure from being reinstated, but eventually it will blow up in his face.

                These puns are hard to read and I have groaned more than once. Don't be a stick in the mud and leave the poor little guy alone, he has no beef with you. Make no bones about it though, his buddies will mess with his head. The ladies talking may also make him red in the face. It may drive him nuts, but hopefully he will remain polite and stand-up so a lady can sit down.

                    It is almost as creative as the female who tested hot and claimed her b/f was a coke head and she performed oral sex on him....and that is how she ingested it. Hey...it only works for some people.

                      What if his last name was Johnson?
                      It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt.
