School Board's Abrams accused of assault and extortion

School Board member Stepen N. Abrams is accused of "second-degree assault and attempt to extort money through an accusation," the Washington Post reports.

In a complaint filed November 20, Adol T. Owen-Williams alleges that Abrams (pictured) "grabbed his throat and slammed his head against a wall last week in a dispute over campaign debt."

The case is now before state prosecutors.
