Baltimore County police say they are investigating a weekend confrontation between an officer and a man filming an arrest in downtown Towson, footage of which was posted online and spread Tuesday. The 2 minute, 24-second video shows Baltimore County officers and Maryland State Police making an arrest as a crowd around them shouts profanities. Officers approach the person filming, telling him that he is distracting them. When the person filming asks what law he is violating, an officer gets up close and tells him to "shut your [expletive mouth]

R&B singer Mario, the Baltimore-born performer whose struggle with his heroin-addicted mother formed the basis of an MTV documentary, was arrested early Friday after she told police that he struck her and destroyed their Fells Point apartment. The 24-year-old, whose full name is Mario Dewar Barrett, was charged with one count of second-degree assault and released after posting $50,000 bond. An attorney representing the singer called the arrest "an unfortunate incident between a loving son and a mother who continues to struggle with a devastating addiction.

An article in the April 18, 1914 edition of The Argus reported the need for more help at the post office. In spite of the increase in the volume of mail coming to the Catonsville postoffice, including the load of parcels post packages, the Postoffice Department has not increased its carrier force for several years. The force of seven men are accomplishing the almost impossible. To attempt a regular schedule of delivery on certain days is quite out of the question. It simply can't be done- hence the delay in the delivery of The Argus to many subscribers last Saturday on account of the heavy Easter mail.

Officers took him into custody before Williams, who was off duty at the time, came to the scene.

Police officers convicted of a crime in Maryland and sentenced to state prison are typically housed in segregated areas for their safety, far from most other inmates. But those prosecuted in U.S. District Court and sent to federal prison - like the 15 Baltimore officers recently convicted in a kickback scheme - will, for the most part, be thrown in with the rest of the convicts. "Whether [inmates are] high profile, law enforcement, whatever the case may be, we aim to treat them like anybody else," said Chris Burke, a spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

To compensate for the arrest or suspension of more than two dozen officers in an alleged towing company scam, Baltimore Police will pull uniformed officers away from an initiative that contributed to a profound reduction in violent crime in the Southeastern District. A team of mostly rookies hired with stimulus funds last year, which had been used for foot patrols in areas including downtown and a high-crime corridor in the Southeast, will be reassigned to squad cars in the Northeast, where a large number of the implicated city police officers worked.

A Baltimore judge sent a police officer to jail on Wednesday for 45 days after he was convicted of beating a drug suspect who had broken into his girlfriend's home, a rare punishment for a police misconduct case. A sheriff's deputy clicked handcuffs around Anthony Williams' wrists as his family screamed and sobbed from the public benches. Williams was led out of the court, across the busy public area of the downtown courthouse and into the lockup. The door slammed behind him. "This case was very troubling to this court," Judge M. Brooke Murdock said before handing down the sentence.

A Baltimore city police officer and Columbia resident was indicted last week on multiple sex offense charges by a Howard County Grand Jury, a county State's Attorney spokesman announced Tuesday. Charles William Hagee, 44, of the 8800 block of Goose Landing Circle, was indicted on three third-degree sex offense charges, a charge of sexual solicitation of a minor, and three counts of prostitution, according to court documents. Hagee was arrested in March by Howard County police when they received a tip regarding the prostitution of a 14-year-old girl in Columbia.  Police said detectives believe Hagee contacted the girl through a phone number posted to an online prostitution advertisement, and that the two exchanged text messages before meeting at his Columbia home and engaging in sexual activity.

Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler is proposing to eliminate the state prosecutor's office, the independent agency that secured a string of high-profile political convictions in recent years. Gansler, a Democrat running for governor, called the office "a holdover from the Watergate era" that overlaps with other law enforcement offices and said scrapping it would save taxpayers as much as $1.2 million a year. But others called the proposal cause for concern, saying the agency's independence puts it in a unique position to prosecute government or electoral wrong-doing.

Officers of the Democratic National Committee generally refrain from endorsing candidates in Democratic Party primaries. But Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, the secretary of the DNC, has thrown her support behind Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, who is running for governor. In doing so, she passed over Democrats Douglas F. Gansler, Maryland's attorney general, and state Del. Heather R. Mizeur. She also left some people grumbling that someone in her position should have remained neutral.

Few of the officers assigned to Baltimore County's Woodlawn Precinct ever met Sgt. Bruce A. Prothero, but they all know his story. Every day, they pass pictures of the officer and his family as they walk through the station's halls. One image shows his daughter, Holly, wearing his cap and seated at his desk the day his wife came to clean it out for the last time. Prothero died 13 years ago, shot three times responding to a jewelry store robbery while working a second job as a security guard.

Forty years ago, Congress enacted sweeping limits on political campaign spending in the wake of a shocking disclosure that one man - Chicago insurance executive W. Clement Stone - had given more than $3 million for the 1972 reelection of President Richard M. Nixon. The amount seemed outlandish then, in a campaign in which Nixon waltzed to victory over his Democratic opponent, Sen. George McGovern, winning 49 states and losing only Massachusetts and the District of Columbia. It was an easily predictable drubbing.
