Police Officer Accused of Kicking a Woman Who Was 8 Months Pregnant

North Miami Beach police officer Ambar Pacheco.

North Miami Beach police officer Ambar Pacheco was charged with aggravated battery after, an arrest affidavit says, she kicked an eight-month pregnant woman Wednesday night in South Beach.

“The victim was transported to Mount Sinai hospital, at last check, she delivered a healthy baby,” Miami Beach police spokesman Ernesto Rodriguez said in an e-mail.

According to the affidavit, the kicking arose from an confrontation at the busy corner of Espanola Way and Washington Avenue around 8:40 pm. Wednesday. On one side, were Pacheco and her 21-year-old sister Mikaela Pacheco. On the other side, Liberty City couple Evoni Murray, 27, and Joseph Predelus, 40.

What started the fight isn’t stated in the report. What is stated is that Ambar Pacheco told cops Predelus kicked Mikaela Pacheo in the face and said to the arresting officer, “I saw red and beat the —- out of (Murray).”

The arresting officer wrote that Murray “appeared to be in severe pain and possibly having contractions.” Miami Beach Fire Rescue got her the three miles to Mount Sinai.

The affidavit said, “(Ambar Pacheco) later stated “She doesn’t know who, but she kicked somebody.”

North Miami Beach police Maj. Richard Rand said Pacheco has been relieved of duty with pay until an internal affairs investigation finishes. She’s been with the department for less than a year, so her employment is still probationary.

According to online Miami-Dade court records, Pacheco’s only previous arrest in Miami-Dade county was for petit theft when she was 18. She was referred to a pre-trial diversion program.
