    A Houston police officer was shot and wounded by his wife, a deputy with the Harris County Precinct 5 Constable’s Office, during an argument in Richmond, officers say.

    The shooting occurred about 4 p.m. Thursday at a home in the 21600 block of Cozy Hollow Lane, said Terriann Carlson, spokeswoman for the Fort Bend County Sheriff’s Office.

    The policeman, whose name has not been released, was wounded in the leg. No other injuries were reported.

    The wife’s name also was not immediately available. She has been reassigned pending the outcome of the case, officials said.

    No arrests have been made, and the case is expected to be presented to a grand jury without charges.

    Ok, now that's odd that someone was not arrested for this shooting due to just the argument portion being mentioned. It's called a domestic dispute I understand, but the shooting turns it into a different ballgame irregardless if he presses charges or not, she shot him.

    This sounds and smells fishy for sure and I can't smell anything on this puter.

    That's what I was thinking here. I would be sitting in a cell pondering that argument and my use of a weapon without question.

    This definitely does not pass the 'smell' test.

    LEO's are trained to think before they pull/use a weapon. Sounds like the wife forgot this during their argument. Other than charges being filed, I would think her job would be in question after this incident.

    Not defending anyone here . . . this smells badly. However, as long as Cops are recruited from the human race stuff like this will happen. Training, conditioning, common sense and self-control only go so far. Cops are no different than anyone else and should be held accountable like anyone else as well.
