Cleveland Police Chief, Calvin Williams, announced that assault charges were filed Friday against CPD Officer Edwin Powell.  Officer Powell was also charged with Menacing and Interfering with Civil Rights.

The charges filed resulted from an Internal Affairs investigation into allegations of misconduct by Officer Powell while he was working secondary employment.  The results of the investigation then were presented to the City of Cleveland's Municipal Prosecutors Office.

Powell received a summons and is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday, March 11 at 8:30 a.m.

Powell will be placed on administrative duties pending a disciplinary hearing in front of Director of Public Safety Michael McGrath.
