Original Release (February 14, 2017 10:38 a.m.):

Baltimore County Police are looking for a man missing from Precinct 2 Woodlawn.

Kevin Irvin Servance, 29, left his home in the 1400 block of Barrett Road in Gwynn Oak around 7 p.m. on February 7 and has not returned. Family members have not been able to contact him since his disappearance.

Kevin is 5'10", 170 pounds, has shoulder length brown hair, brown eyes, and a thin mustache. Kevin left the area on foot and is known to frequent the Laurel area, where he once lived.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact police at 410-307-2020.

A Baltimore County Police officer assigned to the Woodlawn precinct has been charged with second-degree assault in connection with a January 25 incident on Liberty Road.

The officer is Christopher M. Spivey, 29, a nearly nine-year veteran of the Department. He was served with a summons this morning.

BCoPD's Internal Affairs Section began an investigation after the Baltimore Police Department Internal Affairs Section reached out to report a possible assault by a Baltimore County police officer witnessed by crew members of BPD's Foxtrot helicopter as they assisted with a vehicle pursuit on January 25.

The pursuit stemmed from a report of a stolen vehicle at the Wegmans grocery store, 10100 Reisterstown Road, 21117, at 10:40 a.m. on January 25. Later in the day, officers working the Liberty Road corridor saw the stolen vehicle, a 2003 Volvo, driving along Liberty Road near Milford Mill Road. The vehicle fled at a high rate of speed when officers attempted to stop it, and the pursuit ended when the stolen vehicle crashed near the intersection of Liberty and Milford Mill roads.

Video from the Foxtrot helicopter provided to BCoPD shows that the suspect, later identified as Diamontae Tyquan Farrar, 20, of the 1700 block of Smallwood St., 21217, ran from the crashed Volvo, and engaged officers in a prolonged foot pursuit. Eventually, he was apprehended by the responding officers. One officer, determined through investigation to be Spivey, ran up to the suspect and kicked him several times.

Spivey will be suspended with pay, per departmental regulations.

The Foxtrot video will not be released; it is part of an ongoing investigation and is essential to the defendant's right to a fair trial and an impartial jury.
