A veteran deputy with the Broward Sheriff's Office has been arrested on accusations that he recorded video of a gunman opening fire inside the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport back in January.

On Wednesday, he turned himself in to law enforcement, reports the Sun-Sentinel.

A Florida sheriff's deputy has been charged with copying a videotape of a mass shooting at Fort Lauderdale's airport and leaking it to the website TMZ. Deputy Jeff Bell, president of the Broward deputies union, said Dingman will have a strong defense.

Dingman is accused of secretly recording security footage that shows a gunman firing at random January 6 in the baggage claim area of Terminal 2.

Four days after the shooting, Dingman, who earned a base salary of $75,673 and was with the department for 21 years, was suspended with pay as the department investigated who leaked the video. Investigators say Dingman used his cellphone to record the video from a sergeant's computer and then sent it to TMZ.

Dingman faces several charges, including using a two-way communication device (telephone) to commit a felony and tampering/fabricating physical evidence.

The report stated that Dingman told a detective, "Do you guys think I made money on this thing?"

Michael Dingman, 47, was suspended with pay later that month. "You can search my bank records if you'd like, but you aren't going to find anything".
