WASHINGTON — A D.C. police officer charged with attacking his wife in November has been ordered to wear a home electronic monitoring device until his April trial.
Metropolitan Police Department Officer Samson Lawrence is also under house arrest. He must remain at his parents’ house 24 hours a day and is subject to random check-ins.
Lawrence is facing first-degree attempted murder charges after he allegedly sprayed Lysol in his wife’s face during an argument over hanging a projection TV in their home, officials say. When Lawrence’s wife refused to make him something to eat, he allegedly pushed her repeatedly.
