For reasons unknown Jeremy Dewitte and his ex, Jennifer reunited on May 19, 2018 after Jeremy was arrested for failing to properly register as a sex offender.
Jennifer was the catalyst behind this arrest which made their decision to see each other again even more baffling.
According to court documents and the texts exchanged between the two it seemed Jeremy Dewitte was apprehensive about seeing Jennifer again. It seemed he wanted to make it clear he wasn’t tampering with a witness.
Apparently things went well when they reunited but the honeymoon phase slowly turned into countless discussions about Jeremy Dewitte, recordings and police impersonations.
In April 2018 Jennifer told Detective Michael Mastrangelo that Jeremy Dewitte was pulling motorists over. This information wouldn’t be shared with other members of law enforcement for another year and a half.
Jeremy Dewitte was adamant he had never pulled a motorist over nor did he tell a motorist he was a police officer. He seemed angry this information was shared with Detective Mastrangelo.
Today there are countless body camera videos of someone who appears to strongly match the description of Jeremy Dewitte telling motorists to pull over and using his sirens, lights and even physical force to control citizens.
Many of those body camera shots were from 2018 and 2019, which would have been right around the time Jennifer and other witnesses alerted law enforcement about Metro-State employees who were impersonating police officers.
During these alleged police impersonation acts Jeremy Dewitte has also been accused by law enforcement and the State Attorney’s Office of illegally recording citizens.
Before his November 2019 arrest for allegedly recording a motorist named Heather and repeatedly harassing her, Jeremy Dewitte and Jennifer exchanged a series of texts about illegal recordings and police impersonations on January 5, 2019.
It appears Jeremy Dewitte was aware of the laws of recording conversations, both private and in public.
Jeremy denied ever pulling anyone over and he denied ever unknowingly recording another individual.
Just eight months after these conversations Jeremy Dewitte would be arrested for impersonating a police officer. This would begin a series of arrests and charges against him.
There have been a number of puzzling moments in this case and what appeared to be an almost nonchalant attitude about Metro-State Special Services was one of them.
If we were to use the videotapes and only the videotapes as evidence, it is clear the company didn’t attempt to hide who they were from law enforcement.
In almost all of his reports Sergeant Keith Vidler stated employees of Metro-State Special Services wore uniforms or drove vehicles displaying the words:
- Protection Officer
- Motor Officer
- Motor Unit
- Metro State Protection Services
- Public Safety Officer
- Vehicle Protection Unit
- Recovery Unit
Most of the employees wore bulletproof vests, handcuffs, pepper spray, BB guns, authentic guns, motor wing insignia, and drove black and white vehicles with flashing lights, horns and sirens. Jeremy Dewitte wore two black stars which represents a two star general in the military.
It seems Metro-State Special Services wanted attention from the public and it is safe to say a light is now glaring on the entire organization.
