SALISBURY, Md. (AP) — A Maryland police officer accused of threatening an acquaintance with a gun during an off-duty verbal confrontation in his Delaware home last year has entered a guilty plea.
The Salisbury Police Department said in a news release that Ronald Brown pleaded guilty to a felony count of aggravated menacing Monday.
Brown also resigned from the police force last week. He had been suspended without pay after he was indicted by a grand jury in March for the October 2019 incident.
Brown has received a five-year sentence, which has been suspended pending a successful completion of one year of probation.
It wasn’t immediately clear if he had an attorney.
