Florida Cop Has Been Fired Eight Times By Three Departments

Past allegations against Sgt. German Bosque include "busting the skull" of a handcuffed suspect, faking reports, and having drugs in his patrol car

The Opa-Locka Police Department in Florida on Wednesday argued before an arbitrator that one of their own officers deserved to be fired—for the sixth time.

The department told arbitrator Jeanne Wood that Sgt. German Bosque should be terminated because he left a city-owned, 30-round AR-15 assault rifle with the father of his then-girlfriend and now fiancé.

WFOR CBS4 Miami reports that Bosque is "the most disciplined, fined, fired, arrested police officer in the state." He has been fired eight times by three departments in Florida. Opa-locka's six previous attempts to fire Bosque have not succeeded.
