Md. trooper reinstated after incident

Maryland State Police say a sergeant from Hagerstown has been reinstated after his former girlfriend accused him of pointing a gun at her.

Police spokeswoman Elena Russo says Sgt. Timothy McKenrick has had his police powers resinstated and is back on the job.

Sarah Britton filed a criminal complaint against McKenrick claiming that he threatened her with a handgun at his house on Aug. 6. McKenrick also filed a complaint against Britton, saying she illegally entered his home.

Court records show they both sought charges against each other. All charges were dismissed on Monday in Washington County District Court.

McKenrick was suspended without pay after the allegations. His attorney, D. Benson Thompson III, says McKenrick learned Tuesday night of his reinstatement.
