Man charged with sex abuse involving children arrested in DC

A retired Baltimore City police officer was arrested on sex abuse charges involving children, Baltimore County police said. County police said the allegations arose after James Weems Jr. was shot by his wife Thursday at a Washington, D.C., hotel. He is expected to survive and remains hospitalized in police custody pending extradition. Documents obtained by our sister station, WRC-TV, from the Metropolitan Police Department in D.C. indicate Weems was placed under arrest Monday night at a hospital. Weems, 57, is accused of sexually abusing as many as three children while working at The Kidz Kastle Child Development Center, a day care facility in Owings Mills, run by his wife, county police said.
