Cop Who Arrested Man Because He Didn’t “Know How To Act”, Indicted On 32 Counts False Imprisonment, Assault And Misconduct

Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby announced Thursday that veteran Baltimore Police sergeant, Ethan Newberg, has been indicted on 32 counts of false imprisonment, assault and misconduct in office based on a “pattern and practice of harassment and intimidation.”

Newberg was criminally charged with forcibly arresting a bystander without justification in May. The investigation into this charge led to prosecutors watching Newberg’s past body-camera footage and uncovering a pattern of harassment and intimidation demonstrated by the officer.

The indictment, handed down by a grand jury, alleges that Sgt. Ethan Newberg, 49, “did knowingly, intentionally, and unlawfully harass, detain and assault citizens who were engaged in lawful conduct for the improper purposes of dominating, intimidating and instilling fear” in them between July 2018 and May of this year.

Newberg ignored his training as a police officer and the policies of the department, according to the indictment, and repeatedly “stopped, accosted, intimidated, harassed and threatened” people without probable cause in at least nine separate incidents.

“Several of Newberg’s unlawful detentions and assaults occurred as a direct result of citizens sitting or standing idly nearby [as] Newberg was conducting other police business, causing no disturbance nor creating any threat to Newberg or his colleagues; several occurred as citizens openly, from a distance, called into question what Newberg was doing to or with another citizen; others occurred when citizens attempted to video record what Newberg was doing to or with another citizen,” the indictment states.

Newberg has been released on $200,000 bail. According to his attorney, Newberg must return any firearms he has and must also surrender his passport.

A trial date was scheduled for April 21 for Newberg.

Good riddance. Another fool with a badge abusing his authority and undermining the social contract. They will keep in until their lives won’t be worth a nickel in the street when people believe that there is no more contract between the citizens and the state. Maybe with his departure Baltimore’s professional law enforcement conduct will improve.

That racist white boy police don’t know how to do his job. He should be fired or shot dead. Shot dead would probably be best. Even another cop tried to correct the dumb racist cop. But the racist cop was too dumb as dirt to get it.

That piece of shit should not be allowed back into the force. Like these cops should let go of they egos and start doing what they are expected to do . That is to serve and protect . Taxpayers are not paying you guys to abuse and mistreat people . Like come on , be of valuable use to society . I know there are a few good cops out there but for the most part , all are shit heads walking around with your all noses up in the air and head up your all asses. I hope this black guy gets the justice that he deserves .

GOOD. GOOD. GOOD. Now he needs to be convicted with no leniency because he is supposed to know better and do better. He cannot lock people up and he’s doing the same thing.
