Crime

Prince George's County (AP)- A Prince George's County Council member is facing an assault charge after allegedly attacking a county employee.

A charging document filed Sunday says Marilynn Bland grabbed the individual and started screaming and cursing at him on Nov. 17 when he started a meeting without her. The individual making the complaint, W. Randy Short, is the director of the Prince George's County Council's Youth Commission.

The charge carries a penalty of up to 10 years in prison or a $2,500 fine.

A message left at the County Council's office early Tuesday was not immediately returned.
