In October 2019, Lordi failed to activate his body-worn camera during an incident.
Lordi was written up and ordered to receive additional training for violating the department's policy.
2019 Arrest of John Monroque
On November 1, 2019, Lordi and another officer tried to arrest Monroque for trespassing near a grocery store. After a conversation, Lordi pushed Monroque's head down to the hood of the police car. The two struggled before falling to the ground. Lordi punched Monroque in the face multiple times, breaking his nose. An unidentified person blocked any further punches.
Minutes later, after Monroque was handcuffed, Lordi knelt on his head for approximately 14 seconds.
The incident was captured on the store's surveillance cameras.
Lordi's arrest report stated that Monroque tried to grab another officer's gun magazine, requiring the use of force.
An internal investigation initially cleared Lordi.
The FDLE concluded that Lordi "used force in excess of what was necessary to mitigate the incident" and "intentionally or knowingly caused great bodily harm, permanent disability, or permanent disfigurement" to Monroque, and recommended criminal charges against Lordi.
Lordi was placed on administrative duty.
A representative of the police union claimed that the force was "completely justified" as Monroque had attempted to grab an officer's weapon.
On April 27, 2022, county prosecutors announced that they would not pursue charges against Lordi, claiming that "the evidence provided cannot prove all legally required elements of the crime alleged and is insufficient to support a criminal prosecution" as "both officers reasonably reacted to what they perceived as an immediate threat of serious harm to themselves".
Lordi was returned to modified duty.
On August 22, 2023, Monroque filed a lawsuit, alleging the use of excessive force.
2019 Policy Violation
A citizen complained that Lordi had cursed at a suspect and mocked his stutter.

2020 Battery of Jamiah Smith
On January 11, 2020, Smith was near an ambulance that contained his step-father, who had been stabbed. Smith claims that Lordi grabbed him and threw him to the ground, which broke his wrist. Lordi handcuffed Smith and arrested him for resisting arrest without violence.
The incident was captured on body-worn camera.
On January 27, 2023, Smith sued Lordi and the city, alleging that Lordi committed battery.
