New information has developed about the former investigation of Portland’s newly appointed Police Chief.

Chief Mike Marshman was once the subject of an internal affairs investigation in 2006 involving a physical confirmation between Marshman and his stepson while Marshman was going through a divorce in 2002.

Sources told Fox 12 that Marshman’s stepson was a teenager at the time. They said in the struggle, his head was pushed into the wall of their family home and he briefly lost consciousness.

According to court documents from the District Attorney’s Office, the level of his injury was not considered sufficient enough for a felony charge, and any misdemeanor charges were beyond the statute of limitations.

In 2002, a misdemeanor charge of strangulation was not a crime. It was passed by legislation in 2013 and is now considered a crime.

Chief Marshman’s entire personnel file will be released Tuesday.
