Miami Beach Cop Reinstated After 3 Years

Miami Beach Cop Reinstated After 3 Years

A Miami Police officer is reinstated after shooting an unarmed man.

Reynaldo Goyos was originally fired in January 2013, but an independant arbiter rules his dismissal improper.  Back in 2012, the Miami-Dade State Attorney's Office indicated they would not prosecute Goyos.  

Goyos thought the man he shot in 2011 was reaching for a gun in a car when it turned out to be a cellphone.  Several officers had approached the vehicle outside of Take One Lounge because they were targeting local gang members.  

He will return to his job and receive all lost back pay.
