Prince George's Council Member Charged With Assault
UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (WUSA) -- Another Prince George's County politican is facing charges. Council Member Marilynn Bland has been charged with assaulting a council employee earlier this month. W. Randy Short, the executive director of the council's Youth Commission, has accused Bland of grabbing his collar and screaming, yelling and cursing at him. Short says Bland was upset because he started a meeting without her. Bland faces up to 10 years in prison or a $2500 fine if convicted.
