Fort Lauderdale Commissioner Carlton Moore has found himself embroiled in another police controversy -- this time involving his 25-year-old son.

According to a police report, Moore showed up at a popular downtown bar at 2:30 a.m. Saturday after learning police had detained his son, Forrest, who was later let go.

Officers placed handcuffs on Forrest Moore and placed him in back of a squad car, after he refused to leave the Himmarshee Side Bar, the report said.

''The officer's decision to rescind the notice was solely his decision and made prior to anyone arriving on the scene,'' Collins said. ``And it was made prior to the officer knowing who the man's father was.''

Cough...cough...barbrastreisand...cough, cough.
