Surprise deputy debut in rap video causes controversy

MACCLENNY, Fla. --- A YouTube video with a surprising guest star is stirring up controversy on the First Coast. Baker County deputy, Johny Hodges, arrived to the scene of a noise complaint at the BP gas station at 257 W. MacClenny Ave on May 31st. Upon his arrival, he realized the noise complaint happened as a result of a professional music video filming by 7th Sense Productions.

Deputy Hodges left the scene that night. However, days later, he found himself and his patrol car in a music video, 'My Word' by local group, PMF or Pain Made Family.

According to Major Gerald Gonzalez with the Baker County's Sheriff's Office, the deputy did not intend to be in the video. In fact, Deputy Hodges was just doing his job in responding to a call for loud noise at the gas station. Gonzalez says the deputy had no idea he was being filmed.

"We were videoed unbeknownst to us and we certainly did not agree to promote or take part in the video," said Gonzalez. "But, they obviously did it completely right and obtained the business owners permission to use the business."

Major Gonzalez says there are no charges filed and the group did not violate any law. FCN reached out to group PMF for comment, but we have no heard back.
