Officer David Chin, 36, who is married, falsified the reports so he could hide text messages in which he told Natalie Jerue she was pretty and asked her out on dates, the newspaper reported.
Chin, who works in street narcotics enforcement, began sending texts to the woman, who was a friend of a confidential informant.
But in June 2011, he charged her with trafficking Oxycodone – and then falsified some of the facts in a report, according to the Sun Sentinel.
Chin also sent a memorandum to prosecutors saying that on the day she was arrested, Jerue started providing informant information to police that led to several drugs arrests, and the seizure of about 200 Oxycodone pills, guns and cash – which were all lies, the Sun Sentinel reported.
Chin, who attributed the memo to a coworker, is on administrative leave, the paper said.
Last week, another Delray Beach officer was placed on administrative leave after he had sex with a drunken woman who was facing possible arrest. She told investigators she had consensual sex with the “hot cop,” according to the Sun Sentinel.
