Johns Hopkins gynecologist Dr. Nikita A. Levy wrote an apology letter to his wife before wrapping a plastic bag around his head Monday and pumping it with helium, killing himself in the basement of his Towson-area home, according to multiple sources with knowledge of the investigation. Along with the letter, he left behind multiple hard drives, computers and servers that police have seized and are scrutinizing, police said. More than 300 of Levy's current and former patients have contacted officers, fearing that they are pictured in images he is accused of secretly capturing, Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Wednesday.

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.

Attorneys for a Baltimore police officer accused of slitting the throat of a shar-pei in June took the rare step Wednesday of writing an outside-the-court letter directly to Baltimore State's Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein, asking him to drop the case. The attorneys for Officer Jeffrey Bolger argue the case was filed prematurely amid a storm of public criticism and a pre-investigatory rush to react by police and prosecutors, and that information uncovered since clears Bolger of wrongdoing.

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.

Baltimore police are investigating whether officers used excessive force in the arrest of a pair of West Baltimore brothers Sunday, the department said. Officers say that one man punched an officer as the two resisted arrest, while witnesses alleged that officers used unnecessary force in detaining the men following a dirt bike crash in the Sandtown-Winchester neighborhood. Charles Peters had just crashed his dirt bike into a tree on Laurens Street at about 1 p.m. when police arrived.

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.

As the officers questioned the suspect outside the vehicle, an impaired driver ran into their patrol cars.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake criticized the Police Department's handling of a high-profile police brutality investigation on Wednesday, and said she had directed the police commissioner to develop a "comprehensive" plan to address brutality in the agency. Speaking to reporters at City Hall, the mayor said top commanders should have quickly seen a video of an officer repeatedly punching a man, and should have moved immediately to take the officer off the street. "It is outrageous," Rawlings-Blake said of the conduct of the officer shown in the video, whom authorities have identified as Officer Vincent E. Cosom.

Boutique investment firm Hardesty Capital Management moved this month from its longtime home in Mount Vernon to a new office in Hunt Valley, which it said offers more modern conveniences and room to grow, while being closer to its customer base of wealthy Maryland families. The firm has looked to add clients, even as the rising stock market has helped drive its assets under management to more than $900 million, a record for the business. President Chad Meyer, who was hired as chief marketing officer last year, said the 14-person firm is looking to hire more people on the investment side to handle the increased funds, as well as staff that would help bring in business from other parts of Maryland and southern Pennsylvania.

About 200 Maryland Department of the Environment employees on one floor out of the four the agency occupies at its Baltimore headquarters were granted administrative leave Monday as officials dealt with an infestation problem. State officials found bed bugs in the office, located in the Montgomery Park Business Center in southwest Baltimore, in late August. The agency hired an exterminator who performed an inspection of the infested floor Monday. Other parts of the agency remain open, officials said.

A South Baltimore man filed a lawsuit Monday against a city police officer, accusing the officer of punching him repeatedly during a June arrest — an incident that was captured on video. Kollin Truss and Officer Vincent E. Cosom argued a few moments before the arrest, but a woman with Truss had separated the pair, and Truss was apparently walking away from police when they decided to make an arrest. "This attack was completely unprovoked and served no legitimate law enforcement purpose," Truss' attorneys, Ivan J. Bates and Tony N. Garcia, wrote in a complaint filed in Baltimore Circuit Court.

Domestic violence is an issue that has been on the minds of many people in recent days, prompted by the horrifying abuse committed by Ray Rice against his now-wife. His status as a professional football player, coupled with the fact that the attack was captured on video and has been seen by millions, has helped to shine a bright light on this often-neglected yet serious societal problem. Lesser known but not less tragic was the murder of Jessica Meredith Jacobsen, mother to two young boys, by her estranged husband exactly two years ago today in front of their Baltimore County home.

According to The Sun's Jeff Zrebiec , Ozzie Newsome claims that Ray Rice did not lie to him about the incident in which Mr. Rice struck his then-fiancée, Janay Palmer ("Highlights from interview with Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti, president Dick Cass and GM Ozzie Newsome," Sept. 11). Most would assume that means Mr. Rice did not minimize or represent what happened. Dick Cass, team president, states that he was told Mr. Rice slapped his fiancée and she hit her head. The video certainly proves that version to be wrong.

An unexpected exodus of Baltimore police officers in the days and weeks before cuts to their pension benefits took effect has left the department short-staffed at a critical juncture in its efforts to reduce crime. Officers have complained for months that the patrol division is not fully staffed, a contention that department commanders had called untrue. But for the first time, the city's police commissioner is now warning that "staffing is a huge problem" and that shortages could risk breaking momentum in curtailing homicides, shootings and other crime.

I'm an entrepreneur with experience in both public and private sector, and I work in tech, a traditionally male-dominated field. It's important that workplaces affirmatively work to recruit and retain top women talent. Once you get the job, certain minor changes can help ensure you assert yourself professionally. Cheryl Sandberg advises to take a seat at the table - literally and figuratively. Here are a few more tips: •Don't bake brownies. You're not a Girl Scout troop leader at work, don't act like one. •Don't use exclamation points in email correspondence.

Lawyers for a Baltimore police officer said he was legally authorized to kill a shar-pei in June and was acting to protect the unborn child of a woman the dog had bitten — an argument the bite victim said she was shocked to hear. Jeffrey Bolger, a 22-year veteran, is charged with slitting the throat of the dog, named Nala. Bolger is alleged to have killed the dog even though it already had been brought under control with a dog pole. Bolger appeared in court Thursday, and his attorney entered a not-guilty plea on his behalf to two counts of animal mutilation, one of animal cruelty and one of misconduct in office.
