William J. Witkowski, the Metropolitan Police Department detective convicted of simple assault charge after a fellow officer reported seeing him rough up two men, has been given probation. The assault took place in June. Witkowski was also convicted of one count of fleeing and eluding.

Judge Anthony C. Epstein sentenced Witkowski to a 21-day suspended sentence, 100 hours of community service, and one year of supervised probation. Witkowski was also ordered to pay $500 to a city fund that provides support to victims of violent crime.  Witkoski’s attorney, Danny Onorato, declined comment.
