Miami-Dade Cop Arrested by FBI for Pulling Over and Sexually Harassing Women
Dwivedi was arrested yesterday and charged with civil rights violations.
Between May and June of last year, the seven-year veteran was hit with four different complaints by women -- all eerily similar and all verified by investigators, the FBI says.
Dwivedi's M.O. was to pull women over early in the morning and accuse them of driving drunk. Despite those accusations, the officer often refused to conduct sobriety tests.
Instead, as in the case of "A.R.," a 19-year-old he pulled over around 2:20 in the morning May 27, Dwivedi made a series of inappropriate demands.
The cop made A.R. drive to a secluded location, the feds say, placed her in the back of his cruiser, and demanded she "perform inappropriate movements." Eventually, he asked her to lower the zipper on her dress down to her stomach, partially exposing her breasts.
He held the teen for nearly an hour and a half before letting her go. The cop filed no record of the stop in his reports.
