Description of Incident:

Broward Sheriff's Office aggravated felony detectives arrested a Miami-Dade corrections officer, who kidnapped and assaulted his girlfriend, following a domestic dispute in Lauderdale Lakes on Wednesday.

Corrections Officer Javan Beavers and Sheryl Fenn were at a home in Lauderdale Lakes when the two became engaged in some sort of domestic dispute. During the argument, BSO detectives said Beavers threatened Fenn with a gun and placed it in her mouth.

Following the dispute, Beavers told his girlfriend to go with him to a previously scheduled dental appointment. Once Beavers went to one of the back rooms for dental treatment, Fenn used her cell phone to call for help. Her friend in turn called 911.

Following the 911 call at approximately 12:45 p.m., BSO deputies responded to the dentist office in Oakland Park at 830 East Oakland Park Boulevard, Suite 103. Deputies started to shut down traffic on Oakland Park Boulevard by closing the east and west bound lanes between 6 Avenue and Dixie Highway, while those inside the dental office were evacuated. BSO deputies than went inside and took Beavers into custody as he sat in the dental chair. No shots were fired and no injuries were reported.

Beavers is expected to be booked into the BSO Main Jail later this evening on one count of aggravated assault with a firearm and one count of armed kidnapping.

INVESTIGATORS: Sgt. K. Polliard, Dist. 12, Agg. Fel. Det. D. Devine, CI and Chief L. Rogers, Dist. 12
