Hialeah Police Sergeant Arrested on Coke Charges Says He Was Set Up by Girlfriend's Pimp

Hialeah Police Sgt. Tomas Muñoz wants you to know he's not some sort of coke fiend. He's merely an innocent public servant who happens to be dating a prostitute with an evil pimp.

Muñoz was arrested over the weekend on charges of possession of cocaine and drug paraphernalia after drugs and a crack pipe were found in a hotel room he had rented with the woman.

But Muñoz claims he was set up.

"This all came about from a love story. I met a girl, she happens to have a pimp, and we fell in love. He doesn't let her be free," Muñoz told CBS Miami. "I mean, this came about because he set the whole thing up."

Ah, the classic cop-meets-a-hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold love story. Expect a Nicholas Sparks movie to come of all of this.

Muñoz appeared in court Sunday and bonded out of jail on a $6,000 bail. An officer with the department since 1998, Muñoz is now suspended and on at-home status pending the outcome of the case.

The sergeant seems hopeful his name will be cleared.

"Right now I'm dealing with this moment right here, and I'm good," he said. "I'm going to be good no matter what."

If they continue investigation on all departments I believe there will only have just a few left in the police force

I think he (or his attorney) needs to come up with a new defense before he goes to trial.

The boy who cried wolf. When cops lie so much on the job, it's hard to believe them, regardless if it's true or not. Or should i use 'what goes around comes around' metaphor? cops set up most crimes all the time, so now he gets set up. Anyways, this is so usual and cliche by now... typical South Florida officer.

Is funny how I applied to be a cop and give my life to the world everyday. And they said no because I have bad driving record. But lets hire this bitch made asshole instead. There you go US for another hero in your department. Let me guess what your excuse is he fell through the cracks.
