An off-duty Davie police officer is recovering at home after shooting himself in his right foot Saturday at a restaurant in town.

Maiker Sanchez, 36, was treated at Memorial Hospital Pembroke and released, Davie Police Capt. Dale Engle said Monday. Sanchez, a road patrol officer, is using personal time while his wound heals, the agency said.

The incident happened about 10:30 p.m. at Geronimos Bar & Grill, at 3528 S. University Dr.

“He was using his personal weapon that doesn’t belong to the department,” Engle said. “Internally, we continue to look at it but we don’t anticipate any criminal charges being filed.”
