On Friday, the Miami Beach Police Department announced that a detective had been suspended for 160 hours for violating department policies on use of force and handling prisoners in custody. The suspension stemmed from a case where Archer had punched a Good Samaritan in the head, but it turns out the IA’s findings weren’t related to that confrontation.

Instead, Det. Philippe Archer’s punishment stemmed from his conduct in the parking garage back at MBPD headquarters. Surveillance video obtained by New Timesshows Archer punching a handcuffed woman in the face and then kicking her. Investigators say Archer broke department rules by attacking the woman and later failed to note the attack in his official report. Archer also forced a man he’d injured to take a photo with him.
