A Miami Police Department officer, who has been off the job for over a year, was arrested Thursday on several charges – including false imprisonment.

Officer Alexi Figueroa was charged following an investigation by the Miami-Dade Police Department and the State Attorney’s Office. He also faces two counts of simple battery, according to a statement released from MPD Chief Rodolfo Llanes.

Figueroa was relieved of duty with pay in February 2016 and will remain that way pending the outcome of his case and the department’s own investigation.

Further details of the case in question have not been released.
