Francesco Marlett viral video
Prince George’s County Police officer Francesco Marlett was unmasked on Tuesday after a video of the incident went viral, appearing to show him kissing the woman in a public park filled with children.
‘The officer has been identified. His police powers are now suspended as the investigation continues,’ PGPD said in an update.
It is at least the third suspension for Marlett, who was suspended without pay in 2016 when he was charged with child abuse for allegedly knocking his then-girlfriend’s three-year-old boy unconscious – a charge that was later dropped for reasons that are unclear.
In May 2016, he was indicted on one count of second-degree child abuse and one count of second-degree assault stemming from a December 2015 incident.
Prosecutors alleged at the time that he was watching his girlfriend’s three-year-old son on December 27 while she was making dinner, and began spanking her son after he soiled the bed.
His latest suspension comes after shocking video showed the uniformed cop kissing a scantily clad woman in a park, and then climbing in the back of his cruiser with her.
The video first shows the pair kissing as the woman touches the officer’s head. The woman then heads to the back of the car, with the officer’s arm around her.
‘As soon as we became aware earlier today, we opened an investigation to determine the circumstances,’ the department tweeted on Tuesday.
‘Additional information will be released once investigated and confirmed.
