MIAMI (CBSMiami) – A Miami-Dade police officer is under arrest following a possible domestic issue with his wife.

Officer Alexander Bradley and his wife attended a comedy show at the James L. Knight Center on Sunday evening.

According to the arrest report, the couple and some friends decided to get some food following the show at the Big Pink Cafeteria.

After eating, the men went to get their cars in order to return and pick up their wives.

While Officer Bradley was getting his car, his wife was shown a video by the wife of one of his friends.

Per the report, the video showed Bradley “dancing inappropriately” with another woman which made his wife upset.

Once back in the car with Bradley, his wife confronted him about the video which led to a violent argument.

The argument turned physical, according to the report, and Officer Bradley’s wife received serious injuries to her face area.

This included a serious laceration to her upper left eye, which required stitches, a fractured left orbital and injuries to her nose and mouth.

She was also spitting up blood and was admitted to Ryder Trauma Center.

Officer Bradley received only a scratch to the side of his neck but said, post Miranda, that he was only defending himself and that his wife was the initial attacker.

Bradley appeared before a judge on Monday.

Conditions for bond are complicated for police officers.

“How about his requirement with a gun? Unless you are at work? Then he can’t go to work,” the judge said.

“I do not think he will be going to work after this arrest,” the state prosecutor replied.

Bradley was ordered out of the home and to stay away from his wife and children.

“You may return to the victim’s residence one time only if accompanied by a police officer to retrieve clothing and medication,” the judge said.

Bradley has several children with his wife.

“I am responsible for taking them to school in the morning,” Bradley told the judge.

“You will have to work something out. Third party contact for time sharing,” the judge replied.

Bradley has been with the Miami-Dade Police Department since January of 2009.  He has been relieved of duty, with pay.

    This headline, and some text in the article is written to avoid assigning blame to the police officer who beat his wife: “The argument turned physical, according to the report, and Officer Bradley’s wife received serious injuries to her face area.” -“the argument turned physical”–oh, so the argument was to blame? “she received serious injuries”–these constructions bend over backward to avoid assigning agency to the officer who assaulted his wife. Why would you write it like that? Does the police department pay you to whitewash their image?
