Ex-sheriff's officer pleads not guilty in assault with bat

PHOENIX -- A former Maricopa County Sheriff's Office detention officer has pleaded not guilty to assaulting a woman with a souvenir baseball bat and pointing a handgun at her.

County prosecutors said 30-year-old William Glen Edmond entered his plea at his arraignment Monday on charges of felony sexual assault and felony aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

His next scheduled court date is Sept. 11.

The woman told police that Edmond used a wrestling hold to pin her to a bed and then used a small wooden bat during the June 30 assault.

During an argument later, she accused Edmond of pointing a gun at her in front of her children.

Edmond was later arrested at his Avondale home.

Authorities said Edmond had worked five years with the sheriff's office before being fired.
