Former Greensboro Police Chief Charged With Misconduct in Office

Posted: Updated:

GREENSBORO, Md. (WBOC/AP)- The former police chief of a Caroline County town where a black teenager died in custody has been charged with misconduct in office in an unrelated case.  

Maryland's Office of the State Prosecutor says Michael Petyo made factual misrepresentations in an application for certification which he filed on behalf of one of his police officers. The application is reviewed to certify police officers for duty across the state.

Petyo was police chief in Greensboro in September 2018 when 19-year-old Anton Black struggled with officers, became unresponsive and died. A medical examiner said a congenital heart condition and stress from the struggle likely contributed to his death.

Petyo declined to comment or say whether he had an attorney. He left Greensboro this year for a department in Delaware.
