Twitter users have been sharing a video of Prince George’s County (PG County) officer Francesco Marlett getting into a police car while on duty with an unnamed woman.
On Monday, September 4, the video debuted on TikTok and since then, it has moved to other social media sites. It depicts an on-duty police officer having a sexual encounter with an anonymous woman at a children’s park before accompanying her to the police car. The officer was eventually identified as Francesco Marlett by the PG County police department.
Who is Francesco Marlett?
Francesco Marlett, a distinguished police officer serving in the Prince George’s County, Maryland police department, has recently been suspended for the third time during his career. This latest suspension was a result of a viral video depicting him engaging in an intimate embrace and kiss with an unidentified woman while on duty, followed by entering the rear of a vehicle with her.
Prior to this, Marlett had faced two previous suspensions. In 2016, he was suspended without pay after being charged with child abuse, specifically accused of severely beating his then-girlfriend’s three-year-old son to the point of unconsciousness. However, the charges against him were later dropped for reasons unknown.
His second suspension occurred in May 2023 and lasted for a month. This time, he faced allegations of domestic violence. Remarkably, Marlett was allowed to resume his duties a month later in June.
The video that has garnered attention features Marlett engaging in an affectionate embrace and kiss with a woman near a parked police car. This encounter takes place across the street from a group of children who are playing nearby. After lingering by the vehicle for a while, they eventually proceed toward the car’s rear door, with the police officer placing his hand on the woman’s shoulders.
It’s worth noting that the woman in the video is dressed in a revealing manner as she opens the rear door of the police cruiser. The two then enter the vehicle, and the video comes to an end.
Fox 5 managed to locate the individual who posted the video on TikTok. According to their account, their cousin recorded the video while they were at Southlawn neighborhood park in Oxon Hill.
