Police are still searching for a teenager who assaulted a Broward sheriff’s deputy at a BurgerFi restaurant Monday night, authorities said.
On Wednesday, the Broward Sheriff’s Office issued a warrant for Bernardo Oliveira Cardosa Vieira, 17, who will face charges for battery on a law enforcement officer, as well as disorderly conduct and resisting arrest violently.
The customer became unruly around 8 p.m. in the restaurant at 2009 NE Second St. in Deerfield Beach, police said. A deputy who was on foot patrol nearby was called to help escort him from the building.
But the patron began to fight with the deputy and fled after being pepper-sprayed, police said. The deputy was not hurt in the scuffle.

Sheriff’s deputies have continued to search for him since Monday night, they said. Boca Raton police also became involved in the search, according to the Palm Beach Post.
