Boynton Beach police arrested their own Stephen Maiorino Thursday for the alleged incident.
The eight-year force veteran — who earned an "Officer of the Month" award in 2010 and appeared on two national TV shows for his all-star cop accomplishments — will be fired, Police Chief Jeffrey S. Katz said in a statement.
Police said the 35-year-old cop picked up a woman last month, raped her while holding a gun and threatened to arrest and kill her.
A 20-year-old woman was a passenger in a car, but the driver was arrested for DUI, leaving her stranded, the Sun-Sentinel reported. Maiorino, who was on duty, responded to the scene and said he'd take her to police headquarters so her family could pick her up.
But once they got to the station, he demanded she perform oral sex on him, police said. If she didn't, she'd be arrested for DUI, too, he allegedly said.
He drove away from the police station, pulled her out of the car and forced her to take off her clothes. He pushed her onto the hood of the patrol car and sexually assaulted her, police said.
He held her down with his right hand, police said.
He held his gun in his left hand, she told police.
Later, as she got dressed, he pointed the weapon at her again and threatened to kill her — and her whole family — if she told anyone what happened, police said.
