Christopher Chappell Biography
Who is Christopher Chappell ?
A Florida Highway Patrol captain has been arrested and faces a child pornography charge.
Respected and admired by many, Christopher Chappell, 45, was behind bars Wednesday in the Broward County Jail on charges of a disturbing crime.
Local 10 News has learned that Chappell faces at least one charge of accessing with intent to view child pornography, as detailed on the Broward Sheriff’s Office website.
Arrested and Charged
The FBI confirmed that Chappell was arrested Wednesday without incident.
On Wednesday night, an online search for the now-former captain revealed that he was part of Troop L, which is divided into three districts: Fort Pierce, Lake Worth and Davie.
The FHP site says: “Troop L has many high-profile events that require the Florida Highway Patrol to play a prominent and vital role…”
Chappell’s portrait has since been removed from the page.
FHP was unable to share details about the case when contacted by Local 10 News, saying only, “he is no longer an employee of the Department.”
An FBI source told Local 10 News that Chappell’s first appearance in federal court will be on Friday.
