Opa-Locka Officer Accused Of Threatening Man With Gun Over Incident

An Opa-Locka police officer was arrested and faces charges of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon while off duty.

Miami Police say that 35-year-old Officer Stanley Jean-Francois had been arguing with another man, because he believed that man had disrespected his fiancee.

Police said Jean-Francois walked up to the victim aggressively, grabbed him by the shirt with one hand and pointed an automatic handgun to the victim's left rib cage area.

The victim allegedly told detectives that Jean-Francois told him to apologize to the officer's fiancee and then walked him back to her home at gunpoint against his will.

The victim said they stopped at a vehicle and the officer pulled out a badge from his wallet and told him: "I can kill you and no one would know."

The men then walked to the officer's fiancee's home and continued arguing over an apology, authorities said.

Police said Jean-Francois eventually released his grasp on the victim and the victim walked away and called 911.

Jean-Francois has been placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the criminal investigation, as well as an internal investigation.
