Prince George's County Councilmember Charged with Assaulting Council Employee


Prince George's County Councilwoman Marilynn Bland has been charged with assault after an employee of Prince George's County reported that she verbally attacked and shoved him. W. Randy Short said the incident occurred on November 17th, but he held off on pressing charges in hopes Bland would apologize for her alleged actions.

The charges were filed in District Court November 28th by Short, who serves as the executive director for the council's Youth Commission. In court papers, Short said the alleged assault occurred at the County Administration Building in Upper Marlboro, after he began a commission meeting to install new members.
