A Bethany Beach police officer faces an assault charge in connection with an incident at police headquarters in early March involving a person in custody.

The Delaware Attorney General's Office says its Special Investigations Unit determined that the charge is warranted against 45-year-old Richard Haden, a Bethany Beach Police Lieutenant.

A Sussex County Grand Jury indicted Haden for one count of third-degree assault earlier this week.
