Aventura police officer arrested on multiple charges following Pompano Beach incident

Pompano Beach, Florida – A law enforcement officer from Aventura Police Department has been arrested on an array of charges following an incident that transpired in Pompano Beach, as confirmed by the authorities.

David Esteban Delgado, who is 30 years old, was taken into custody and transferred to the Broward County Jail on Tuesday evening. The charges brought against him comprise two counts each of kidnapping and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of possessing arms during the commission of a criminal offense, and a single count of battery.

The arrest was instigated by a grievance lodged by two individuals pertaining to an event that unfolded on Saturday, May 20, at around 10:15 p.m. However, the details regarding the incident in Pompano Beach remain undisclosed.

Delgado initially faced allegations of authority misuse and false arrest. In response to these claims, the Aventura Police promptly initiated an internal affairs investigation and suspended Delgado, granting him pay during the suspension.

As the incident transpired within the boundaries of Broward County, the investigation was handed over to the Broward County Sheriff’s Public Corruptions Division.

Aventura Police Department has provided their full cooperation to the Broward Sheriff’s Office in the pursuit of a comprehensive and transparent investigation. Consequently, charges were filed against Delgado, leading to his arrest.

Delgado’s court appearance before a judge is anticipated to be scheduled for Thursday morning, following which he may be allowed to post bond. Until further notice, his suspension persists, albeit without pay.
