More details in arrest of city officer
The Harford County Aegis newspaper reports today on details of the allegations against Baltimore Officer Kevin Rowland, who was charged Wednesday with inappropriately touching a 17-year-old girl who police say was in his care.
The girl told police that he has kissed her on the mouth and had her sit on his lap, confiding in her about marital problems, exchanges she found "weird" and "uncomfortable," the newspaper reported. Rowland, according to court documents, said that the kisses were "normal pecks on the lips" and that he told her that their relationship could "never got that route, period."
Rowland was released after posting $100,000 bond in Harford County District Court. Rowland is a member of the regional gun trace task force and has been placed on suspension, city police said.
