COLUMBIA, Md. — A family in Maryland has filed a peace order against a police officer after an alleged off-duty confrontation with a teenager.
WBAL in Baltimore reported Wednesday that the officer, Damond Durant, works for the Baltimore City police department. The reported incident occurred in Columbia where the officer lives.
The 16-year-old said Durant approached him last week in a carpool area. Jawone Nicholson said the officer asked why he was there. Then he allegedly made a taunting statement, pulled out a gun and identified himself as a Baltimore City police officer.
According to a police report, Durant said he felt threatened. Nicholson denied being threatening.
The teen provided Howard County police with a written statement. According to the police report, Durant refused to give one.
They go back to court Monday.
