A Prince George’s County police officer has been suspended for allegedly posting to social media the arrest of a former, local, NBA start.

Prince George’s County Police are investigating after an officer recorded and allegedly posted a video of former NBA player and local basketball star Delonte West following a fight. The officer has been suspended.  Prince George’s County Police Chief Hank Stawinski says the officer could face serious charges after posting the now viral video.  Police responded to the incident Monday morning, noting the fight was over by the time they arrived.
