The trouble for two Prince George's County police officers started after a Memorial Day house party in Charles County.
The host of the party accused three teens of stealing liquor. Police say he called his police buddies from Prince George's County to scare the teens. They were in a marked car but in plain clothes.
"They had an occasion to confront three juveniles. There was some type of detention that took place," says Prince George's County Police Assistant Chief Kevin Davis.
The officers handcuffed one teen, another one escaped, and the third was put in the back of a cruiser driven about two miles away to McDonough High School where he was hit and kicked in the head.
After the incident, one of the teens agreed to talk to FOX 5 as long as we kept his identity hidden.
"I had to just sit back there and just ride," the teen says. "I didn't know if I was ever going to see my parents again. I was very scared and nervous. I didn't know where they were taking me. I didn't know what they were going to do."
Police put the teen's bike in the trunk of the police car. They told the teen to count as the officers left him there.
Charles County Sheriff's Office investigated the allegations and charges were filed against the officers on Thursday.
"Prince George's County Police Department is committed to ethical and professional policing, both on duty and off duty, and we have very high expectation of our officers' conduct while they're wearing the uniform and when they're not wearing the uniform," Assistant Chief Davis says. "We continue to cooperate with the State's Attorney's Office in Charles County."
The officers are charged with kidnapping, assault, false imprisonment and misconduct.
The father of one of the victims spoke to FOX 5 about the latest developments.
"I think I got justice," he says. "Other kids are safe out there now from officers like this."
Police do have the ability to enforce the law in other counties, but they first have to notify the jurisdiction before they take action.
