DC Police Union vice chair under investigation

The vice chairman of the D.C. Police Union had some of his police powers suspended as the department investigates an accusation against him.

Medgar Webster Sr. has been placed on “non-contact status,” D.C. police spokesman Hugh Carew told WTOP.



Non-contact includes restricted contact with the public.

Webster has not been charged with a crime.

According to a D.C. police report, the offense involved is a misdemeanor charge of sex abuse for engaging in “unwanted sexual contact” with a female in Whole Foods Market on Saturday, April 2.
