Panama City- A former Florida Fish and Wildlife officer, accused of breaking laws he used to enforce, was arraigned in a Bay County courtroom Monday.
David Erdman pled not guilty to four misdemeanor charges including possession of undersized snapper, two counts of possession of undersized groupe, and possessing over the legal limit of red snapper.
This isn't the first time he's been in trouble with the state. Last year Erdman was forced to pay a fine for not having a proper state-issued fishing license.
He resigned from his FWC position last year for unknown reasons. Monday he declined an on-camera interview but blamed the charges on animosity between himself and the state. The judge set a pre-trial hearing for October.
