TUCSON, Ariz. (TheBlaze/AP) — A Tucson, Ariz., police officer has been fired after authorities say he pulled a gun on a gas station attendant while off duty and apparently intoxicated.

The Pima County Sheriff’s Department notified Tucson police that 23-year-old Kyle James McCartin was arrested early Tuesday on two counts of aggravated assault.

The ex-officer is very fortunate not to have taken headshots for those antics in gun-friendly Arizona.

That guy reminds me of "Farber" from the movie Super Troopers. Maybe he didnt get his free hot dog with gas fill up, lol.
I need to rent that again. The out-takes at the end where they describe how they did some of the scenes were awesome.

He needed to be fired...in most agencies, probationary officers have no civil service protection, and there is no recourse once they are fired. However, he should have been charged with a crime of some sort of assault with the handgun. In Texas it would be Aggravated Assault because of the firearm, a deadly weapon.


Unfortunately, fellow members, we hire police officers and other public servants from the rest of society, and we all know what society is like these days or many of us wouldn't carry handguns. There is no definitive manner by which to find out which will be good employees and which will not. I'm glad he's gone from the rank and file I worked among for 30 years. We don't need these people.

Two counts of aggravated assault as evidenced = one year with supervision after release based on past cases in my area. As a past LEO and if incarcerated this guy will be subjected to abuse from the other inmates.

Who here would have shot the guy in the same situation?
I might not have shot him, but I certainly wouldn't have continued to wait on him like the cashier seemed to do.

So what type of excuses can we make for this behavior? Let’s see, he played foot ball and bang his head? Yeah that sounds good. Well at least the anti gun crowd won’t put this up like they would an armed citizen.

So are LEOs immune to charges of intoxication with a firearm?

Well at least they have charged him for his antics, not just firing him.

That ex cop probably won't do too well in general population.
