A city police officer was arrested yesterday and charged with hindering other officers who were arresting her sister, a police spokeswoman said.
Spokeswoman Angelique Cook-Hayes said officers entered a house in the 1400 block of Gittings Ave. in Northeast Baltimore about 6: 15 p.m. and arrested Garshell Boyd, 29, who was charged in a warrant with assault.
She said that as officers were arresting Garshell's sister Nicole Boyd, 27, on charges of harboring a fugitive, Officer Stephanie Drew, 34, got between the officers and her sister and tried to block the arrest.
Cook-Hayes said the Boyds and Drew, all of the Gittings Avenue address, were arrested. She said Drew has been on the force for 13 years.
