WASHINGTON – The D.C. police union says a detective accused of unholstering his gun at a snowball fight faces a possible 10-day suspension.
The Fraternal Order of Police said Detective Michael Baylor learned about the proposed suspension Tuesday and plans to appeal. The police union is representing Baylor, who does not have an attorney.
In a report dated Feb. 4 and obtained by The Associated Press, the police department’s internal affairs bureau says Baylor acted “confrontational” as he approached a large crowd in northwest Washington in December. The review also says Baylor failed to report stopping a man he thought had thrown a snowball at the detective.
A D.C. police spokeswoman says she cannot comment on personnel matters.
