MD Cop Charged With Rape During Traffic Stop, Left Own Driver License In Victim Vehicle

PALMER PARK, MD. (THECOUNT) — Prince George’s County Police Officer, Ryan Macklin, reportedly left his own driver license in the vehicle of a woman who is claiming she was raped during a traffic stop.

Macklin, who was arrested for allegedly raping the woman during a traffic stop, mistakenly tossed his own license in the car of the victim he raped after becoming “flustered,” sources say.

The officer was suspended without pay over the alleged attack on a woman he stopped over a traffic infraction on October 11 at around 1 a.m.

Macklin was arrested Monday night and is being charged with five counts of rape and assault.

Law enforcement sources tell WUSA9 that as Macklin got flustered and was trying to leave the scene, he mistakenly tossed his own license at the victim because he forgot he’d given her license back already. Continue reading
