Retired BSO deputy behind bars
MIAMI (WSVN) -- Troubling charges were made against a former South Florida Deputy, and this one time law man is no stranger to the spotlight.
A retired Broward Sheriff's Deputy who has been in the spotlight before was sent behind bars on Sunday for domestic battery, accused of trying to strangle his wife.
Thirty-three-year-old Maury Hernandez was booked into jail at around 6:30 p.m. Sunday night.
Hernandez was first in the public eye back in 2007 after he survived a gunshot wound to the head. The shooting occurred after he pulled over David Maldonado for running several red lights. Maldonado pushed Hernandez before running away, he then turned around and fired his gun at Hernandez. Amazingly, Hernandez himself called for help after being shot.
Maldonado was later found guilty of attempted murder.
Just last year, Hernandez was in the spotlight again after he shot a homeless man who he claimed was threatening his children. The homeless man survived.
Now it's Hernandez in the hot seat.
We're still waiting on police to provide us with more details on the case.
Hernandez is still in jail with a $5,000 bond.
