Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis took an unexpected detour to St. Petersburg after mechanical issues hit his aircraft and prompted an emergency landing.
DeSantis was headed to the Broward County Sheriff’s Office from Tallahassee to announce the suspension of Sheriff Scott Israel, who led the handling of the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting, according to 10News WTSP.
All passengers on the plane are reportedly doing well.
DeSantis will speak in Broward County at 4:30 p.m. — an hour and a half later than planned.
