A law enforcement officer employed in Prince George’s County, Maryland, has been subjected to a suspension following the circulation of a widely shared film that purportedly depicts him engaging in a kissing interaction with a lady, subsequent to which both individuals entered the rear compartment of a patrol vehicle.
“PGPD Executive Command is aware of a video circulating on social media with one of our officers. As soon as we became aware earlier today, we opened an investigation to determine the circumstances,” the Prince George’s County Police Department posted on its Facebook account Tuesday.
Since then, the public has been informed on Facebook that “the officer has been identified.” While the investigation is ongoing, his police authority has been suspended.
According to the Baltimore Banner, the officer was caught on camera canoodling with the woman on Sunday. By Wednesday morning, the video had received millions of views. Officer Francesco Marlett of the PGPD was confirmed by police sources as the cop shown in the video to local media.

The footage shows the uniformed cop putting his arm around the woman’s waist and kissing her before they get into the rear of a marked police car.
The Baltimore Banner noted that the incident took place at Carson Park in the hamlet of Oxon Hill on Sunday at around seven o’clock in the evening, according to the person who filmed the viral video, who went only by Nelson O. The source claimed that when he and his family were playing soccer at the park, he spotted the policeman strolling about and claimed that he appeared “suspicious.”
He continued by saying that he started filming as soon as he saw the young woman, who he estimated to be in her 20s, arguing with the officer and that “something didn’t seem right.”
According to the Baltimore Banner, the couple stayed in the back of the police car for around forty minutes before getting into different cars and driving off.
“It was concerning because there’s kids around,” Nelson O told the outlet. “It just seemed off because this is the person that you’re supposed to call for suspicious activity doing the suspicious activity, you know.”
On Facebook, a lady claiming to be Marlett’s wife wrote a message on Wednesday, lamenting the “embarrassing and painful” circumstances.
