Maylene Maldonado was being booked for an alleged assault on an officer when the incident took place in February 2013.

The officer who assaulted the handcuffed woman is Sergeant Daniel Major. Maldonado has since named Major in a $1 million federal lawsuit.

Major is no longer employed by the CPD. However, it is unclear as to why Major is no longer with the department. The chief of staff for the mayor’s office, Mary Moge, said she was unsure if Major was fired or resigned.

His predecessor, Thomas Charette, who was acting chief at the time of the incident involving Major and Maldonado, has defended Major’s actions as appropriate in light of the circumstances

An “investigation” that took place after the choking determined that Major did not violate department rules when he attempted to strangle a handcuffed 100 pound woman.
