Suspended Baltimore Police Officer Timothy Rae George III, 25 was acquitted in Baltimore City District Court on April 3 of second-degree assault, false imprisonment, malicious destruction of property, and theft in connection with an incident on March 2, 2017.

Police said officers responded to the 3200 block of Bayonne Avenue that day where they met with a 21-year-old man. The man told police he was in a domestic relationship with George and that George, his boyfriend, assaulted him.

According to Maryland court records, George was acquitted noting “spouse invoked marital privilege after oath.” Public marriage records indicate that George and the 21-year-old man married on March 8 in Towson.

Lawrence S. Greenberg, listed as the defense attorney of record, did not respond to a Blade request for comment.

George was suspended by Baltimore Police without pay in November after he was charged in York County, Pa., for allegedly sending inappropriate texts to a teenage boy.
