ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A disciplinary hearing has been rescheduled for a Maryland police officer in Maryland who faces allegations that he put his knee on the neck of a Black man during a traffic stop.
The Capital Gazette reports that Wednesday’s hearing in Anne Arundel County has been postponed because a witness is no longer available to testify.
The hearing is yet to get a new date. Police department officials have declined to identify the officer. An internal investigation recommended the detective be fired.
But he requested a proceeding to review that recommendation. It will be reviewed by a panel of three police officers of varying ranks.
