BALTIMORE — A Baltimore police officer has been indicted on a charge that he lied to his superiors about an off-duty fight with the father of his girlfriend’s child.
Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby’s office charged Officer Troy Anthony with misconduct, making a false statement to a law enforcement officer and second-degree assault.
The Baltimore Sun reports that Anthony self-reported the fight and told one of his supervisors that he acted in self-defense after the other man punched him during an argument over custody of the child last May in a hospital parking lot.
But the officer allegedly lied about the other man being the aggressor.
