A Miami Police officer has been relieved of duty after she was charged with battery for allegedly fighting during the Millennium Tour concert over the weekend at the FTX Arena.

Khadijha Hardemon, 27, was arrested Tuesday in connection with the fight on Friday night, according to an arrest report.

At the concert, Hardemon approached the father of her child, who was with a woman in the audience, and "aggressively poked the rear of his neck with two fingers," the arrest report stated.

At one point, Hardemon approached the victims again with her group of friends, the report stated. One of Hardemon's friends threw a punch, and a fight began.

The woman victim told police Hardemon punched her, which caused her to fall on the floor, the report said.

The father of Hardemon's child told police he was not on friendly terms with Hardemon and they haven't spoken in months.

Hardemon was arrested on Tuesday after police reviewed surveillance video and determined her as the primary aggressor.

Hardemon, who has been with the Miami Police Department for four years, was relieved of duty without pay pending an internal investigation, according to department spokesperson Kenia Fallat.

Hardemon faces two misdemeanor charges of battery and was bonded out of jail Tuesday afternoon.

Miami-Dade Commissioner Keon Hardemon is Khadijha's relative and her attorney.

"By the end of this case, you’ll find few things," Commissioner Hardemon said. "One, that she’s innocent of all charges and she'll be not guilty — that family members who are police officers were behind this arrest — and her baby’s father is a woman beater."
