WASHINGTON — A Prince George’s County police office was found guilty on assault and other charges Wednesday after a cellphone video captures him pointing a gun at a Bowie resident’s head more than a year ago.
Officer Jenchesky Santiago, a three-year veteran of the department, was been found guilty on charges of assault, the use of a firearm in a crime of violence and misconduct in office.
Santiago will be sentenced in January.
In May 2014, prosecutors say that while patrolling a Bowie neighborhood, Santiago approached a car which he claimed was illegally parked. William Cunningham testified on Tuesday that he and his cousin were sitting in a car parked on the street outside of Cunningham’s home.
