About 2015 Traffic Crash
April 18, 2016 Sweet Water Cop Alejandro Ramos Arrested
Sweet Water Cop Alejandro Ramos Arrested-Sweetwater police officer arrested on official misconduct charge Alejandro Ramos accused of lying about 2015 traffic crash.
A police officer from Sweetwater was arrested after he falsified an official statement about a traffic accident he was involved in last year.
According to the warrant, Ramos was responding to a call for an officer needing assistance at a nearby Wells Fargo Bank. He told Florida Highway Patrol troopers that he was following a marked SUV and he activated his lights and siren and looked both ways before crossing the red-light.
Authorities said Ramos claimed that a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck “came out of nowhere” and struck his car.
Troopers initially gave the other driver the ticket, because Ramos claimed to have “cleared the intersection” and “proceeded with caution.”
A red light camera is located at the intersection and captured Ramos failing to stop at the red light, the warrant said.
Authorities said the first police officer in the SUV did stop at the intersection, but Ramos, who was following at a distance, never stopped or slowed down before crossing the intersection.
He was arrested on a charge of official misconduct by a public servant. He has since bonded out of jail.
