Fired police officer reinstated after blaming positive cocaine test on 'sexual aid cream'

Miami Beach police Detective Reinaldo Casas was fired last year after a random drug test revealed cocaine in his system. He got his job back with full back pay after he testified that the cocaine had been "unwittingly absorbed into his blood through an erection-enhancing cream he applied to his genitals."

Casas said he received the sex-enhancement cream from a friend, who in turn got it from “an old Cuban guy” as a gift for giving him some political campaign signs.

“Detective Casas is looking forward to resuming his distinguished law-enforcement career with the Miami Beach Police Department in the homicide unit and putting this unfortunate situation behind him,” said Eugene Gibbons, a lawyer for the Miami Beach police union.
