A top Florida cop was handcuffed after a big argument in a hotel during which he threatened to "end it."
Hours later, he shot himself in the head.
Miami-Dade Police Director Freddy Ramirez was allegedly seen holding a gun to his mouth during an argument with his wife and threatening to "end it."
Somebody called the police and got cops to the scene, where they handcuffed a confused Ramirez who pretended not to know what was going on or why anyone would have called authorities.
Luckily, a hotel employee was able to set the story straight, saying that Ramirez and his wife "were out here arguing, they came out here and he said he was going to ‘end it now’ and put a gun in his mouth."
Jody Ramirez, Freddy's wife, had been drinking that evening. She and Freddy got into a heated argument outside the hotel at which they were staying for a police conference in Tampa Bay.
The pair had been married for thirty years, and Jody told police when they arrived that she had known "all the buttons to push."
When police arrived at the hotel with a riot shield and weapons drawn, Jody was the first Ramirez to exit the room and greet the officers. She did so with her hands up, something that Freddy appeared reluctant to do from the footage.
A few hours after the altercation at the hotel, police received a call from Jody.
She was screaming that the pair were on I-75 and that Freddy had shot himself in the head and wandered into traffic.
Ramirez underwent surgery and was reportedly in critical condition.
He did not suffer any brain damage but could lose his right eye.
Freddy Ramirez has been with the Miami-Dade Police Department since 1995.
