A Miami police officer has been arrested after his own department says it caught him taking money to be a drug dealer’s hired muscle.

Officer Jose Maldonado Dick has been arrested and charged with eight felony charges, including two counts of armed trafficking in cocaine and two counts of official misconduct by a public servant.

The Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office showed photos of what it claims show Officer Maldonado Dick with a wad of cash in his hand, after taking money from a drug dealer.

Maldonado Dick allegedly offered to serve as the drug dealer’s protection while he sold cocaine in a McDonald’s parking lot near Midtown Miami.
