On 05/26/2012 at approx. 1840 hrs, an Officer with The Frederick Police Department was on routine, uniformed patrol in the area of N Bentz St and W Church St when he observed a male fighting with a female. The male had his arm around the female’s neck and the female was attempting to pull away from him. The two were moving around and the female was continuing to try to get away as the male kept the female in a headlock. When the Officer stopped his car and exited, the male stopped the assault and he was taken into custody. Further investigation revealed the victim and male were dating and she was trying to leave the area after arguing with the male, who was later identified as Michael Gerome Warfield Jr. Warfield grabbed and held the female, not allowing her to leave. When the male was told he could not assault the female, Warfield replied she was “his girl and he could.”
Warfield was transported to Central Booking for further processing where he was charged with Second Degree Assault and Disorderly Conduct.
