Baltimore County police officer accused of assaulting suspect

Baltimore County police officer testified at his trial Wednesday that he kicked a suspect for his and other officers' safety, and denied spitting on the man after he lay on the ground handcuffed.

Officer Christopher M. Spivey is charged with four counts of second-degree assault during the Jan. 25 arrest of 20-year-old Diamontae Tyquan Farrar, who had led police on a chase in a stolen vehicle and then tried to flee on foot.

Spivey, 29, has been with the department for about nine years and was previously assigned to the Woodlawn precinct. He was suspended with pay from the department after the incident. Farrar was convicted of theft and attempting to elude police in the incident. He received a three-year sentence last month.
