TRACYS LANDING, MD - The Capital said a former officer from the Anne Arundel County Police Department was sentenced Aug. 15 to 60 days in prison after shoving his wife, injuring her hip in Tracys Landing.

The newspaper said the 38-year-old ex-officer, Hans Hopple, started with the police department in 2007. Hopple was originally suspended with pay after his March 29 arrest, but The Capital reported that he is no longer employed by the agency.

The Capital said Hopple, who's also a Marine Corps veteran, was convicted on one count of second-degree assault. Prosecutors also alleged that Hopple turned off the light so their toddler couldn't see him shove the mother, journalist Luke Parker reported.
