OAKLAND PARK —A Broward County Sheriff’s Office deputy has been suspended after he was arrested on a drug charge Friday.

Detective John Brindle was arrested on one count of possession of a controlled substance, Broward Sheriff’s officials said.

 Investigators conducted surveillance of Brindle and said he bought oxycodone pills without a prescription Friday in Oakland Park.

Authorities said he used intimidation and his position as a BSO detective to buy the pills.

Brindle is suspended with pay pending prosecution by the state attorney’s office.
