Pay Restored for Florida DOC Employees

Two prison employees involved in a softball scuffle will have their pay restored because their felony battery charges stemming from a fight at a softball banquet were dropped.

The Department of Corrections says COL Richard Frye and MAJ James Bowen will remain on leave pending the outcome of further investigation.

Tallahassee police arrested the men in November. The men were at a softball banquet in April at the Florida National Guard Armory in Tallahassee when a fight broke out involving several people.
