Man held without bond after allegedly assaulting BSO sergeant

Tyler Comegno, 24, cut off ankle monitor after attack, deputies say

OAKLAND PARK, Fla. – A 24-year-old man appeared in bond court Tuesday, a day after he allegedly assaulted a Broward Sheriff's Office sergeant in Oakland Park.

A Broward County judge granted Tyler Comegno a $100,000 bond for charges of battery on a law enforcement officer and resisting an officer, however he ordered that Comegno be held without bond for violating conditions of his probation.

He also ordered that Comegno not have contact with the victim.

According to authorities, the sergeant was investigating a traffic incident outside Comegno's home on Northwest 51st Court when he was assaulted.

A witness, identified only as Ray, told Local 10 News that the sergeant was going in and out of Comegno's home when Comegno slammed the door on the sergeant's head.

"All of a sudden, the policeman said something and this guy slammed the door on the officer's head and gave him a big laceration across his forehead," Ray said.

The sergeant suffered injuries to his head and face and was taken to Broward Health Medical Center. He has since been released.

Authorities said Comegno cut off his ankle monitor after the assault and left, but was quickly apprehended.

He has been arrested 10 times in recent years in Broward County.
