(WSVN by means of CNN). (Meredith/AP)– An off-duty Florida police officer was accuseded of exacerbated battery after she kicked a pregnant lady in the stomach during a confrontation, authorities stated.
Miami Beach authorities spokesperson Ernesto Rodriguez said in an e-mail that Officer Ambar Pacheco of the North Miami Beach police was jailed Wednesday night.
An arrest affidavit says Pacheco and her 21-year-old sibling Mikaela Pacheco entered a fight with 27-year-old Evoni Murray and 40-year-old Joseph Predelus on a Miami Beach street corner.
Officer Pacheco told investigators that after Predelus kicked her sister in the face, she then “beat” Murray, who was eight months pregnant.
Rodriguez states Murray was taken to the health center and provided a child boy.
Predulus, the kid’s father and Murray’s boyfriend, informed WSVN their newborn is expected to be OKAY despite the run-in.
” When he was born, it put a smile on my face,” he stated.
It’s uncertain what started the battle.
North Miami Beach Maj. Richard Rand told the Miami Herald Pacheco is on paid leave pending an examination.
Pacheco was not in uniform at the time.
