A high-ranking official in the U.S. Marshal Service has been placed on leave after he was arrested for allegedly beating his wife, the Washington Examiner reported  Tuesday.
Sylvester E. Jones, Assistant Director of the Marshal Service’s Witness Security Division, was arrested earlier this month Prince George’s County police on charges he assaulted his wife, Alicia Jones.
According to court records, Alicia Jones told police her husband hit her with a car door and that she suffered ongoing abuse. The two filed for divorce in March.
A spokesman for the U.S. Marshal Service told the Examiner that Sylvester Jones has been placed on leave until his court hearing next month.
Sylvester Jones told the Examiner that his wife’s allegations are baseless. “I was set up by the woman I was married to, who happens to be with another guy, and I hope to have it settled in court,” he said.
