The Maryland police officer who was caught on camera passionately making out with a woman beside his patrol vehicle before climbing into the back seat with her has been suspended

The Maryland police officer who was caught on camera making out with a woman beside his cruiser before climbing into the back seat with her has been suspended.

Prince George’s County Police officer Francesco Marlett was unmasked on Tuesday after a video of the incident went viral, appearing to show him kissing the woman in a public park filled with children.

‘The officer has been identified. His police powers are now suspended as the investigation continues,’ PGPD said in an update.

It is at least the third suspension for Marlett, who was suspended without pay in 2016 when he was charged with child abuse for allegedly knocking his then-girlfriend’s three-year-old boy unconscious – a charge that was later dropped for reasons that are unclear.

He was also suspended for one month in May 2023 after being accused of domestic violence, but returned to duty in June, WBFF-TV reported. 

A PGPD spokesman did not immediately respond to requests for comment early on Wednesday. Martlett could not be immediately reached for comment.

His latest suspension comes after shocking video showed the uniformed cop kissing a scantily clad woman in a park, and then climbing in the back of his cruiser with her.

The video first shows the pair kissing as the woman touches the officer’s head. The woman then heads to the back of the car, with the officer’s arm around her.

‘As soon as we became aware earlier today, we opened an investigation to determine the circumstances,’ the department tweeted on Tuesday. 

‘Additional information will be released once investigated and confirmed.’

Prince George’s County police union boss Angelo Consoli told the Washington Post the union was aware of the video, and the police department is investigating.

‘We support our officers during any and all investigations, and ask that people reserve any judgment until the facts come out,’ Consoli said. ‘At which time, we’ll reevaluate our position.’

Nelson Ochoa told WRC-TV that he filmed the now-viral video on Labor Day, when he was out playing soccer with family at Southlawn Park in Oxon Hill.

‘As soon as I started recording, a car pulled up and a young lady came out,’ Ochoa said.

‘We couldn’t believe what we were seeing, and what really made us go, ‘Wow, this is crazy,’ is when the car started rocking a little bit to the left and right.

‘That’s when we were, like, this is crazy. In broad daylight with kids around.’

Ochoa said that Marlett and the woman drove off in opposite directions about 40 minutes after the liaison began.

‘I’m glad I caught it on camera so Prince George’s could see what kind of officers they have working for them supposedly protecting the community,’ he said.

After Martlett was accused of being the officer in the video, his record came into the spotlight.

In May 2016, he was indicted on one count of second-degree child abuse and one count of second-degree assault stemming from a December 2015 incident.

Prosecutors alleged at the time that he was watching his girlfriend’s three-year-old son on December 27 while she was making dinner, and began spanking her son after he soiled the bed.

As he was spanking the child, the boy’s head hit the wall and he lost consciousness, prosecutors alleged. 

‘There is no excuse for Officer Marlett’s actions,’ Angela D. Alsobrooks, who was then the Prince George’s County State’s Attorney, said in the statement at the time. 

‘No matter what may have happened, striking a defenseless child and causing this type of injury is never acceptable,’ she added.

The charges against Marlett were later dropped and expunged, according to WBFF, and he remained on the PGPD force.

The footage of the officer making out in the park was originally posted to TikTok on Monday night and has been watched more than two million times.

The poster wrote: ‘Pg cops don’t care.’ Kids can he heard and seen running nearby the couple. 

A group of men can be heard in the background speaking Spanish as they judge the scene.

One says: ‘Look! Look! He’s taking her to the car!’ Another adds: ‘He’s an animal, the bald cop!’ 

Thousands of social media users have commented on the video, with many calling for the officer to be fired.

‘This needs the ‘you about to lose your job’ sound,’ said one TikTok user. ‘Should’ve called the cops… oh,’ said another.

‘Meanwhile a lil old lady somewhere getting robbed or worse,’ added a third.

Others wondered how the loved up pair would get out of the backseat, as the backseats of police cars supposedly can’t be opened from the inside.
