Jenchesky Santiago

The Prince George's County Police officer who held a gun to a man’s head and mouth during a stop was sentenced to five years in prison.

Jenchesky Santiago was sentenced Friday. The incident was captured on cell phone video back in May of 2014 in Bowie and happened while the man was being dropped off at his own home.

Prosecutors say Santiago accused the victim of parking illegally even though he had not.

Santiago was found guilty of first and second degree assault, use of a handgun in the commission of a crime of violence and two counts of misconduct in office.

No one was hurt in the incident.
