According to the Miami Beach Police Department, Williams faces a charge of resisting arrest. Meanwhile, Pascal was arrested Sunday on a warrant after his girlfriend told authorities in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, that Pascal had assaulted her.

The Prince George's County Police Department said both men have been suspended, pending investigations by the department's internal affairs division.

The Miami Beach Police Department said Williams was arrested early Monday after he tried to interfere with officers who were breaking up a fight in the 900 block of Ocean Drive.

Miami Beach police said Williams ignored repeated warnings to step away from the officers. At one point, Williams allegedly flashed his police badge. When an officer pushed Williams back with his hand, Williams became angry and took a fighting stance, Miami Beach police said.

Pascal is being held at Miami-Dade County's Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center, awaiting a court hearing on his extradition to Maryland.

Williams was released on bond Monday.
