Patrick Burt, PBSO Deputy Charged With Stalking, Facing Domestic Violence Charges in Martin County Too

We told you yesterday about Palm Beach County Sheriff's Deputy Patrick Burt, who authorities said drove his patrol car to Boca Raton (while he was supposed to be patrolling Wellington) to hang up signs about his ex-girlfriend at her workplace on Valentine's Day, calling her current boyfriend a "cheater who pursued another person's fiancé." Police also say he admitted to installing a GPS tracking device on her car.

The Sun-Sentinel reports Burt is being held in Palm Beach County Jail, but those aren't his only problems.

Martin County court records indicate Burt posted $10,000 bail last Thursday after being arrested on charges that he violated a domestic violence injunction. It's not clear if this is in relation to the same Valentine's Day incident or even the same woman, but his arraignment in Martin County court is set for April 26. A date has not yet been set for his Palm Beach arraignment.

Martin County records also indicate that Burt was sentenced to driving school twice, after speeding incidents in 2004 and 2006. Charges for careless driving in 2010 and driving without proof of insurance in 2011 were dismissed.
