MIAMI -- A notorious former Opa-Locka Police sergeant dubbed "Florida's Dirtiest Cop" has been arrested for kidnapping a man who wanted to file a police brutality complaint against him.
German Bosque, 49, turned himself in to Florida Department of Law Enforcement officials Friday afternoon and was being held without bond at Miami-Dade's main jail, according to an FDLE release.
Investigators say Bosque punched the victim in August 2011 while on duty, responding to a domestic call. When the man wanted to file a police brutality complaint at the Opa-Locka Police station, Bosque "forcefully escorted him from the lobby, handcuffed him and placed him into a holding area."
The victim was held against his will for a short time and was never provided an opportunity to file his complaint, according to the FDLE. As a result, Bosque has been charged with first degree felony kidnapping, tampering with a witness, and misdemeanor battery.
Bosque, who was finally terminated from OPD in October 2012, was famously the subject of a special investigative report by the Sarasota Herald-Tribune called "Unfit For Duty." The nine-part series published in December of 2011 examined the state's "flawed system of policing the police" -- with Bosque's long and violent rap sheet serving as Exhibit A.
