The Miami Police Internal Affairs Division has recommended the firing of the department's deputy chief and his wife amid an investigation into a crash.
Deputy Chief Ronald Papier and Commander Nerly Papier were relieved of duty with pay last month amid an internal investigation.
In a statement released Wednesday, department officials said Papier and his wife were served "reprimand packages with a recommendation for termination related to their involvement in a non-injury vehicular crash and the administrative handling of the crash."
According to a crash report, the incident started when Nerly Papier swerved her police car into a curb at an intersection in downtown Miami in early April.
"To avoid striking another vehicle she swerved and struck the edge of the curb causing damage to both of her right tires. Both right tires were punctured and both right rims were damaged during the accident. The driver was not injured during the accident," the report said. "Vehicle…was towed to City of Miami Motor Pool for repairs. No police action was taken."
The police report showed the officer who wrote it indicated the accident happened at 9 a.m. However, it showed the call reporting the accident didn’t come till 1:45 p.m., more than four hours later.
When the officer got to the scene, the officer was there less than 60 seconds, arriving at 1:50 p.m. and leaving at the same time, the paperwork showed.
Police didn't say exactly why there’s a recommendation the two officers lose their jobs.
"Final disposition of this matter is pending, therefore, no further statement will be provided at this time," the department's statement read.
NBC 6 contacted the union representing the officers but haven't heard back.
