Milton Roy Lovett, a Miami Police reserve officer, should know better. He was arrested last week in Miramar on DUI charges stemming from an accident that he caused. Not only that, but he resisted arrest with violence, say Miramar police officers.
Officers say they received a call from a motorist who said he was struck by a vehicle but the driver left the scene. They had also received a call about a driver who hit some garbage cans. It turns out that Lovett was responsible for both. When officers responded, they say Lovett refused to perform field sobriety tests and then resisted arrest when officers attempted to place him into custody.
Miami Police confirmed that Lovett has been an officer for 14 years, retired in 2013, and is currently on their reserve force.
