Miami Officer, Girlfriend Arrested Following Domestic Incident

A Miami officer was arrested Wednesday after a fight with his girlfriend.

Kyle Centeno, 26, was charged with battery and false imprisonment. His girlfriend, Isamar Tavarez, was also arrested charged with battery and resisting arrest without violence.

According to an arrest report, Centeno and Tavarez argued early Wednesday over content on the officer's phone.

Centeno claims Tavarez followed him in her vehicle and asked him to pull over. With Centeno in full uniform, the argument continued at a nearby intersection, with Tavarez allegedly slapping Centeno in the face and threatening to destroy his belongings.

When the two returned home, Centeno placed Tavarez in handcuffs and into his patrol car after she allegedly continued striking him. 

Tavarez denies slapping her boyfriend, saying she only pushed him away when Centeno said he would handcuff her. She did admit to kicking Centeno in the groin after she was placed in his patrol car.

After both were taken to Homestead Police headquarters, Tavarez, at first, recanted all her previous statements and accused detectives of lying. 

Later she admitted to not wanting Centeno to lose his job, but claimed he had threatened her with losing custody of her children.
