Frederick Officer Charged With Assault

OAKLAND, Md. (AP) — The Garrett County Sheriff’s Office has charged a Frederick police officer with second-degree assault.

Frederick police say Officer Benjamin Whitmore’s police powers were suspended after his arrest on Sunday. Whitmore was released on bail, but police say he is on administrative leave pending the outcome of the criminal investigation and an internal investigation by Frederick police.

Police did not give details of either investigation.

Whitmore has been on the force for five years and was assigned to the patrol division.
