A Florida cop has been found guilty of forcing a young woman and a young man to run naked to avoid arrest.

Former Miccosukee Officer Michael Martinez, 30, of Hialeah, Fla., shed tears after the jury verdict in Fort Lauderdale Thursday, according to reports.

“I took my pants off. I took my shirt off,” Remy Riley told the jury Wednesday, Fox 7 Miami reported. “I kind of looked at him like, ‘Is this enough?’ He’s like, ‘That’s it?’”

The jury also heard Riley say that after she took off her underwear and bra, Martinez was “kind of like, ‘Move your hands away from your body so I can see,’” according to the station.

NYPD COP ARRESTED ON SEX CHARGES INVOLVING 12-YEAR-OLD GIRL

Martinez was accused of threatening to arrest Riley and Kyle Shoulta, 18, on drug and alcohol possession charges after stopping them for running a stop sign on Alligator Alley near the Miccosukee Reservation three years ago.

Prosecutors said the officer then offered Riley and Shoulta a deal—run naked and avoid jail, Fox 7 reported.

“I was given a choice of go to jail or run, so I took the choice to run naked,” Shoulta testified, according to the station.

Martinez was fired a year after the incident. He was arrested last year, the station reported.

A prosecution spokesman told the Sun-Sentinel Martinez also solicited Riley for a sex act.

A lawyer for Martinez did not return the paper’s calls seeking comment.
