A police sergeant from New York, who is the daughter of a State Senator, was arrested for keying the car of her police officer boyfriend after sending a flurry of hostile text and voice messages, authorities said.

The veteran police officer, Damaris Diaz, 43, was charged with criminal mischief and aggravated harassment for the incident down in Bronxdale, where she supposedly damaged a Honda Accord 2005, owned by police officer Edward Velasquez.

"If you do not want your car keyed come right down," she threatened in a text message sent from outside her home on Saturday. It was one of 58 texts sent in two days. "You're being f --- ed up," another text read.

"You are annoying me so hurry and come down," she said in a voice mail, one of five she left on her boyfriend’s phone.

Her brother is Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. Diaz, a 19-year veteran assigned to the Police Academy. She was processed and released Saturday night. She made no comment.

"I'm sleeping. No comment," said her father by phone.

The President of the Sergeants Benevolent Association Ed Mullins said Diaz has a spotless record.
