An officer stationed at the Pikesville precinct was arrested Tuesday night and charged with first-degree assault and other charges in connection with an alleged domestic incident on Sept. 23 involving another officer, a Baltimore County police spokeswoman told Patch.
Elise Armacost, a police spokeswoman, said Wednesday that a warrant for Officer First Class Brian Eaton, 23, of Parkville, "was served last night."
Eaton is charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault, false imprisonment and destruction of property, stemming from an alleged incident with his ex-girlfriend, who is also an officer stationed at Pikesville, Armacost said.
"The domestic incident occurred on Sept. 23. The next day, Sept. 24, the matter came to the attention of the police department's Internal Affairs Division, and Internal Affairs promptly (Sept. 24) suspended Eaton's police powers," Armacost said.
As part of the suspension, his service weapon was taken away. Internal Affairs "immediately contacted the appropriate unit to begin investigating criminal charges," Armacost said.
Eaton, a five-year police department veteran, was released on $50,000 bond.
The second officer was not identified.
