2 Pr. George's officers assaulted

Two Prince George’s County police officers were injured late Friday when they were sent to an apartment in Temple Hills to investigate a noise complaint, county police said. After additional officers were sent to the scene, eight people were arrested on drug charges, police said.

Police said Ebony Richardson, one of the two officers originally sent to the address in the 3000 block of Brinkley Road around 11 p.m., received stitches for a head injury. The other officer, Cpl. Cosandra Carr, was treated at a hospital for arm injuries and released, police said.

A county police official said the officers were trying to maintain the quality of life for residents of an apartment complex by asking that loud music be turned down.

“The next minute,” said Maj. James Harper, commander of the police district IV station, “the officers were physically attacked.” The officers, Harper said in a statement, had unwittingly “stumbled upon” an alleged drug operation.

Three of the eight suspects were charged with second-degree assault, police said. One of the three was also charged with second-degree assault of a law enforcement officer, the police said in a statement.

The statement said that after officers obtained a search warrant for the home, they seized marijuana, PCP and Ecstasy with a total value of more than $15,000.

Police said a 1-year-old child was found in a closet in the apartment.

Come on, wewintheylose! Give it a rest. What does Obama have to do with a drug operation in Temple Hills? Answer: nothing. This kind of stuff has gone on long before Obama entered into the political arena and it will continue long after he leaves it. Mindless platitudes and partisanship from the likes of you are not going to help either.

What makes you think family members will actually look after the child? These kids end up being raised by the same ones who raised their criminal parents in the first place.

I am surprised that an assault on a police officer was reported in the Washington Post.

Thank you.

PCP that explains why the natives were restless. Sounds like P.G. Co.is going soft if they had to get medical treatment. In the old days they would've handcuffed you and then beat your tail. Must be retired Monkey Co. cops... Lol...

This is Obama's America, why not blame him he is the President. They blame Bush for everything seems only fair.

I do not recall the Post ever reporting on an assault against a police officer unless the officer has been shot. But let an officer touch someone roughly during an arrest and its in on A1.

So what this really means is that two female officers could not handle this disturbance. Might as well have said that because that's how it reads.

WTF does Obama have to do with THIS ?? OK so he's no Houdini; at least he's trying, more than can be said about "T"ush!!!!

@kahlua87 ... so what you're implying is that male officers could have 'handled' 8 people some of who were probably hopped up on drugs? ... what are you on?

Now really who can believe anything PGPD says when they lied about the young man at Maryland University who was beat for no reason? And please does anybody really believe that 2 PG officers were hurt and one received stitches? Everybody knows that if a PG officer even get looked at hard they will shoot until the clip is empty. I won't believe anything that happened in that house, unless someone shows me a tape.

I read article over and over again, but seem to not see anything about any family member taking the child.
