A South Florida official is being criticized over a video that shows him calling out a sheriff’s deputy during an awards ceremony, claiming the law enforcement officer had falsely arrested him four years earlier.
City commissioner Mike Gelin on Wednesday shamed Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Joshua Gallardo during an Officer-of-the-Month program at the Tamarac City Commission meeting, according to NBC Miami.
After Gallardo and others were honored, Gelin is seen grabbing the microphone and calling Gallardo back down to the floor.
“It’s good to see you again. You probably don’t remember me. But you’re the police officer who falsely arrested me four years ago,” Gelin said. “You lied on the police report. I believe you are a rogue police officer, you’re a bad police officer and you don’t deserve to be here.”
