U.S. marshal accused of assaulting wife
A top official with the U.S. Marshal Service office in Washington has been placed on leave after being charged with severely beating his wife, according to court documents, the Washington Examiner reports.
Sylvester E. Jones, the assistant director of the marshal service's Witness Security Division, was arrested May 3 and charged with first- and second-degree assault on his wife Alicia Jones.
A day earlier, according to court documents, he hit his wife with his car door at their Accokeek home. He then picked her up and threw her against a parked car, according to police reports. Her head then hit the pavement, knocking her out, a report said.
Jones told The Washington Examiner on Monday that his wife's allegations have "no credibility."
Court records show Jones and his wife have been in the midst of a divorce since March.
