MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. – A Miami-Dade police officer faces charges on allegations that he physically assaulted his girlfriend during an argument inside of his home.
According to Miami-Dade police, on June 19, at approximately 10:12 p.m., the victim and her boyfriend, 26-year-old Christopher Andrew Delgado, were involved in a verbal dispute at his house.
As the argument escalated, she informed Delgado she was going to leave and began collecting her belongings, his arrest report stated.
As she attempted to pick up her belongings, Delgado is accused of striking her arm, causing her to drop her cellphone and pushing her.
He is also accused of shoving the woman out of the residence with force.
Police say the woman, who called 911, suffered scratches to her nose, left shoulder and arms.
Over two months later, on Aug. 25, Delgado turned himself in at the Turner Guilford Correctional Facility.
He has since been charged with one count of simple battery, a first-degree misdemeanor.
A hearing on the matter was held Wednesday, at which time the case was assigned to a new judge. Delgado’s attorney did not dispute the change.
