BALTIMORE (WMAR) — A Baltimore Police Sergeant convicted of assaulting another sergeant, received a 16-year suspended jail sentence and three-years probation on Thursday.

Last August, Sergeant Marlon Koushall and other officers responded to Custom House Drive for a disorderly call.

When Koushall and company arrived, they were approached by Henrietta Middleton, who happened to be an off-duty Baltimore Police Sergeant.

At the time, police said Middleton was acting disorderly, and arrested her on multiple citations including disorderly conduct, assault, and resisting arrest.

But during her arrest, the States Attorney's Office said Koushall pushed and punched Middleton, knocking her down without legal justification.

Following the incident, Middleton was briefly suspended by the police department. In late December of last year, prosecutors dropped all charges against her.

The following February, Koushall was charged, and suspended from the department with pay.

His current status in the department is unclear.
