    Kingston cop charged after firing weapon in home

    From my neck of the woods:

    Daily Freeman - Kingston cop charged after firing weapon in home

    KINGSTON (NY) - A veteran city police officer has been suspended with pay after being accused of firing his service weapon in his home while in an argument with his wife, Police Chief Gerald Keller said Tuesday.

    Benny R. Reyes, 40, a seven-year veteran of the city police force, was charged with reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child, both misdemeanors, following the incident at 10 a.m. Sunday, Keller said.

    Keller said officers responded to Reyes' home on Russell Street after getting a 911 call from the home. The report was that a domestic dispute was taking place there, Keller said.

    Reyes' wife, who was not identified, told police that the two had been involved in an argument, and that Reyes grabbed his .40-caliber handgun and stuck it in his mouth while standing in the living room. Keller said the couple's 6-year-old daughter was also home at the time.

    At one point during the argument, Keller said, Reyes went into a bathroom and fired the gun, leaving a bullet lodged in the ceiling.

    Reyes was arrested at the scene and admitted to St. Francis Hospital in Poughkeepsie for a psychiatric evaluation. Keller said he was not certain when the officer is due in court.

    Um, why? Was he trying to scare his Wife, to make her think he killed himself? That just sounds like a very stupid thing to do, they should consider removing him from duty, who knows what other kind of idiotic things he can do.

    Sounds like a case of domestic violence. It's a one time offense that will get your second amendment rights taken away for a very long time.
