A Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy was arrested Monday, accused of not arresting a woman in exchange for sexual favors.
The sheriff’s office said that on July 13, 2013, Deputy Ted Arboleda met a woman at a Dania Beach gas station who did not have a valid driver license and was in possession of marijuana and an unlabeled bottle of prescription medication.
The woman, a BSO spokeswoman said, told the deputy she was on felony probation and offered him money in exchange for the officer not to arrest her.
According to BSO, Arboleda did not take the money and instead returned the drugs to her, allowed her to leave her car at the gas station and gave her a ride home.
Once at her house, the woman allegedly offered him oral sex and he accepted.
After the sex act, Arboleda left without arresting her, BSO said.
Arboleda was placed on administrative duty on Aug. 19, 2014.
He was arrested Monday on one charge of unlawful compensation or reward for official behavior, a second-degree felony. He has been suspended without pay. BSO’s internal affairs investigation is ongoing.
Anyone with information about this case or any other involving Arboleda should contact BSO’s internal affairs office at (954) 321-1100.
