Corrections Corporal Arrested for Violent Domestic Encounter

A corrections officer in Florida is facing career-ending domestic violence charges after allegedly beating his wife when they got into a dispute over their child.

On the afternoon of February 25, a 36-year-old man who works as a Miami-Dade corrections corporal was reportedly involved in a savage encounter with his wife. According to reports, the incident started when the couple became embroiled in a disagreement about their son.

The argument intensified, and the woman punched the bedroom door, reportedly causing her husband to become angry. The man allegedly responded by getting physically violent with his spouse and yanking the wig off her head before punching her in the face. He allegedly slammed her head into the wall, spit on her, and struck her with a candle holder hard enough to break it. He also allegedly strangled her from behind with his hands while she tried to get away. His wife reported that she was unable to breathe.

It was reported that when she was able to free herself, the woman ran out of the house. She went to a home nearby to keep herself safe from further possible harm and called the authorities.

The man was taken into custody and booked into the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center. He is facing preliminary charges of domestic battery by strangulation, and battery. According to jail records, he is no longer being held in the county facility.

If he is found guilty of the charges, he could lose his career in law enforcement in addition to a possible jail sentence. There is currently no information on whether he has retained an attorney to defend him against the accusations.
