Man records his heated debate with officer over crosswalk citation

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office is reviewing a viral Facebook video showing one of its police officers and a citizen in a heated debate over a ticket.

Devonte Shipman said the officer "abused his power" after issuing him a citation for illegally crossing in a crosswalk.

The 21-year-old said he was crossing the intersection of Arlington and Lillian roads Tuesday when an officer stopped him and his friend.

Puerto Rico vs. Armada postponed until July 12th

Mother Nature would not be denied as the Puerto Rico FC vs. Armada FC soccer match was postponed until July 12th after days of heavy rain made the field at UNF unplayable.

The two teams will play two games in four days next month. The Armada will travel to Puerto Rico on July 8th before the two teams come back to Jacksonville.

Fans who purchased tickets for the game originally scheduled to be played Sunday will be able to use them for the July 12th game.
