The last thing you expect on a Sunday afternoon drive is to get into a car accident with an intoxicated police officer, and then the officer leaves the scene of the accident! That is exactly what happened when a Miami-Dade police officer sped into Fernado Monchs car on Sunday at 2:30. I am supposed to be protected by the police. Not the police do that to me and they disappear. According to one eye witness, He was just hauling butt. I saw it happen. It was just brutal. The fact that anybody would leave is ridiculous. Officer Laverde was arrested by his own department later that afternoon. Laverde has an above satisfactory record with the police department, but he has also has a history of preventable car accident in his cruiser, 5 of them since 2008. He is facing charges including fleeing the scene of an accident and driving under the influence. He is presently on paid administrative leave.
