POMPANO BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - An Aventura Police officer was arrested on multiple charges stemming from an incident in Pompano Beach, authorities said.

Thirty-year-old David Esteban Delgado was booked into the Broward County Jail on Tuesday night. He faces two counts of kidnapping, two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of being armed while engaged in a criminal offense and one count of battery.

The arrest comes after a complaint was filed by two individuals regarding an incident that occurred on Saturday, May 20, at approximately 10:15 p.m.

It remains unknown what happened in Pompano Beach.

The initial allegations against the officer involved misuse of authority and false arrest. Following the complaint, Aventura Police launched immediate internal affairs investigation, and Delgado was suspended with pay.

Given that the incident occurred within Broward County’s jurisdiction, the Broward County Sheriff’s Public Corruptions Division took over the investigation.

The Aventura Police Department has fully cooperated with the Broward Sheriff’s Office to ensure a thorough and transparent investigation. Based on their findings, charges were brought against the officer, and he was placed under arrest.

Delgado will need to appear before a judge, most likely on Thursday morning, before he is permitted to post bond. He remains suspended without pay until further notice.
