A former Opa-locka Police sergeant made his first appearance in court after turning himself in for charges including kidnapping and battery.

German Bosque, 49, is accused of illegally handcuffing and detaining a man at the Opa-locka Police station after he tried to file a complaint, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Miami Regional Operations Center said.

The man attempted to file he complaint on Aug. 3, 2011, after Bosque allegedly punched him, while responding to a domestic call, authorities said.

That same day, the man went to the station attempting to file the complaint.

“Investigators believe Bosque forcefully escorted him from the lobby, handcuffed him and placed him into a holding area,” the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Miami Regional Operations Center said in a statement. “The investigation shows the victim was held against his will for a short time and was never given the opportunity to file a complaint.”

A judge ordered Bosque held on no bond on the kidnapping charge Saturday after he turned himself in on Friday.

“I don’t believe I don’t understand how it got to kidnapping,” said Bosque’s attorney during the bond hearing.

“Kidnapping is what’s keeping him in jail,” he added about Bosque, who was fired by Opa-locka Police in October 2012, according to the FDLE.

But the judge did not change the charges.

After the judge ruled no bond Bosque asked: “Your honor can I ask for house arrest?”

“I already ruled,” the judge said.
