Officials say both women hit the man several times, which left him bruised up with his lower hip injured. It’s unclear if the women decided to confront the unidentified man beforehand. Officials added that as Perez was dating him, he and Zuloaga resided together as she is seven months pregnant.
Alfredo Ramirez, Miami-Dade Police Director, said that the incident is under investigation, and the officer has been placed on leave with pay.
“I am disappointed by this officer’s actions….We are held to a higher standard of conduct on and off duty. Although this officer was off duty, her behavior was unacceptable and it goes against the core values of our department,”
said Ramirez in a statement.
The women are facing battery charges.
