Ocean City Police have arrested and charged a female off-duty Prince George’s County sheriff with felony assault after she allegedly pulled her weapon during an argument with another woman.

Police said the deputy, Jennifer Nicole Douglas, 26, of Fort Washington, was involved in a dispute over car keys that escalated into a physical confrontation early Sunday morning.

During the confrontation, police said Douglas allegedly brandished her badge and handgun and pointed the gun at the other woman’s head.

Douglas then drove off and was stopped by OCPD near 42nd Street. She identified herself as a Prince George’s County Maryland Sheriff’s Deputy during the stop. Police recovered 40-caliber Glock handgun.

In addition to first-degree felony assault, Douglas is being charged second-degree assault and reckless endangerment, both misdemeanors. She is being held at the Worcester County Jail on a $150,000 bond.
