Broward deputy arrested after leaking airport shooting video to TMZ, BSO says

A Broward Sheriff’s Office deputy was arrested and charged Wednesday with secretly recording footage of a mass shooting at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in January and then releasing it to TMZ, according to BSO.

Michael E. Dingman, 47, was booked at the main jail and released on a bond of $2,000 shortly after he turned himself in around 10 a.m. Wednesday.

The arrest warrant alleges that Dingman used his cellphone to secretly record about 20 seconds of footage near the beginning of the airport shooting and then illegally send the video to the gossip website. The warrant also states Dingman tried to reset his phone to factory settings and submerge the phone in water to cover his tracks.

“This is a deputy who violated his oath, and I hope the truth surfaces and justice is served,’’ said Broward Sheriff Scott Israel.
