Suspended Opa-Locka Police Officer Arrested on Domestic Battery Charge

A suspended City of Opa-Locka police officer was arrested Sunday for domestic battery.

The incident occurred at the victim's home located on the 13000 block of Northwest 28th Avenue in Opa-Locka.

Dennis Horn, 30, appeared in bond court Monday to face an aggravated battery charge following an incident with his pregnant girlfriend.

He was appointed a public defender and granted $3,500 bond.

According to the police report, Horn and the victim visited a City of Opa-Locka police officer. The officer gave the woman a brown box to drop off at at UPS. The woman and Horn returned back to her home and on their way they got into a verbal argument.

The altercation began because Mr. Horn is "insecure" and did not like the woman "talking to other men," the police report said. The conversation escalated when Horn became irate and grabbed the aggressively by both of her arms and pushed her up against the interior portion of the passenger side door while yelling obscenities, the report said.

Horn and the woman have been in a relationship for four months and live together.

Horn has been charged with aggravated battery. He was already under investigation by FDLE for a criminal investigation and is on paid administrative leave.
