PHOENIX (AP) -- 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 say 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 Edmond allegedly used a wrestling hold to pin her to a bed and used a small wooden bat during the June 30 assault.
During an argument later, she says Edmond allegedly pointed a gun at her in front of her children.
Edmond was later arrested at his Avondale home.
Authorities say Edmond had worked five years with the sheriff's office before being fired.
