JARRETTSVILLE, Md. - Harford County deputies had to control a Maryland State Police sergeant who took off his pants and reportedly harassed customers at a Jarrettsville barbecue restaurant, according to an incident report filed by the Harford County Sheriff’s Office.
So far, no charges have been filed against the sergeant who witnesses said at one point pulled down his jeans and began exposing himself to customers at the Jarrettsville Pit on Aug. 16. The sergeant’s name was redacted in the incident report provided by Harford County authorities.
Sheriff’s deputies found the man who appeared to be drunk, sitting in a booth at the back of the restaurant. The man told the responding deputies that he thought the bar was empty aside from the people he was drinking with.
The man said he was wearing shorts under his jeans and admitted to authorities that he took his pants off but at no point did he expose himself to other patrons. The man then took his pants off again to show deputies that he was wearing “black spandex briefs,” according to the incident report.
Deputies contacted a Maryland State Police supervisor to take custody of the reportedly drunken sergeant. While waiting for the supervisor, the sergeant took out a cell phone and started taking pictures of the deputies stating “look at the camera and smile,” the incident report goes on to say.
A supervisor took the man to the Maryland State Police Bel Air Barrack for questioning.
As of Tuesday, no charges were filed against the man suspected of taking his pants off at the bar.
