The sheriff’s office said it has changed its mind.
The man was stopped for a traffic violation. Then, deputies found a hunting rifle and three handguns inside.
“We have come to the conclusion that the deputy involved in Mr. Frisco’s traffic stop was incorrect in a portion of their interpretation of Florida Open Carry Laws. Mr. Frisco was not in violation regarding the manner in which he was transporting his rifle.” - Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office
