The Baltimore Sunday (http://bsun. md/1RTJ2PH ) reports that 27-year-old Officer Terrell Carter acknowledged that he punched the detainee who spat in his face while officers were trying to move him out of a holding cell.

Carter testified he was defending himself and the man was unruly.

Carter was charged with second-degree assault and two counts of misconduct in office in October 2014.

Prosecutors said the detainee suffered a laceration to his forehead, and bled in the holding cell.

Defense attorney Chaz Ball says he's pleased with the jury's finding.
