CAMBRIDGE, Md.- A school principal in Dorchester County, who was accused of holding his wife against her will last year, has been acquitted of all charges.

Fifty-six-year-old Vaughn D. Evans Sr., the principal of North Dorchester Middle School in Hurlock, was charged in November with assault and false imprisonment after a domestic incident.

According to charging documents, officers received a call saying there was a gun at Evans' home in Hurlock. When they arrived, Evans' wife said her husband had locked her in the bathroom and taken her cellphone so she could not call 9-1-1. Court documents state that meanwhile, Evans locked himself in a bedroom, armed with a rifle.

The Dorchester County SWAT Team and deputies were able to take him into custody.

After a criminal jury trial held this week, Evans was found not guilty of false imprisonment and second-degree assault.
