DORAL, FLA. (WSVN) - A Miami-Dade Police officer was arrested following an angry outburst during his son’s high school wrestling match, investigators said.

Fifty-year-old Guillermo Cuba faces charges of aggravated assault, battery and displaying a firearm on school property.

During Saturday’s wrestling match, held at North Miami Senior High School, police said Cuba got upset and pushed someone to the ground.

Detectives said Cuba tapped his loaded gun as he was escorted out.

MDPD Director Alfredo “Freddy” Ramirez confirmed Cuba has been relieved of duty. In a statement, he wrote, “The arrest of a police officer weighs heavily on our profession and our community. I am confident that the Miami-Dade Schools Police Department will conduct a thorough investigation into this very serious matter.”
