A Miami Beach Police sergeant has been relieved of duty after he was reported to be drunk while working an off-duty job at a South Beach club.

Police received an anonymous call around 4:30 a.m. Monday that the sergeant was intoxicated while working at Mangos Tropical Cafe in the 900 block of Ocean Drive, Miami Beach Police said in a statement.

The shift commander responded to the club to investigate, and the sergeant was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital for medical treatment and alcohol testing, police said.

Police later confirmed Sgt. Mike Muley was the officer involved in the incident. He has since been relieved from duty with pay until the investigation into this incident is complete.

"There is no room in this organization for people who drink on dut and that's an allegation right now," said Chief Dan Oates. "In the rare circumstances where there is a very serious allegation of misconduct as there is in this case; it will be thoroughly investigated. And if it's proven to be true; it will be dealt with."

Muley was involved in the infamous 2011 incident involving former officer Derick Kuilan, who was convicted of reckless driving after hitting two people while riding on the beach with a woman on his ATV.

Muley, a supervisor at the time of the ATV crash, was later demoted and suspended for 80 hours without pay.

Prosecutors said Kuilan, who was on-duty at the time, was legally drunk, but he was acquitted of driving under the influence.

Kuilan was sentenced to 18 months in prison just last week.
