Baltimore’s Clark Was Probed Earlier For Assault


Baltimore Police Commissioner Kevin Clark, who was recently investigated for an alleged domestic assault, was investigated for his possible involvement in a similar incident in the late 1980s while at the New York Police Department the Baltimore Sun reports. Mayor Martin O’Malley released a report on Clark’s recent domestic dispute yesterday, after losing a legal battle to keep it private. The report was prepared by Howard County investigators after the May 15 incident with his fiancee, Blanca Gerena. “There was no evidence to verify that an assault took place,” the report says.

Clark told officials that while working for the New York Police Department he had been “set down” for four months in the late 1980s while the department investigated a domestic abuse allegation. Clark, 48, declined to answer questions about the report. “I came to Baltimore to do one thing: fight crime,” he said. “We are making significant progress.”
