Carlos Miller has a story that’s pretty incredible. A Connecticut police officer was sleeping at his desk during his shift, so the other officers thought it would be funny to take a picture of him to make fun of him later. Let’s just say the sleeping cop didn’t take too kindly to it. He woke up, pulled his gun and threatened the officer with the camera:
Freeman yelled at Davis to put the gun away, but Davis continued to track his movements with the gun pointed at Freeman’s head and his finger on the trigger, police said. After Freeman yelled at Davis a second time, Davis put the gun back in its holster, police said. Freeman then left the office.
Police said Freeman reported the incident to MTA Internal Affairs. Following an investigation, Davis was suspended for two weeks. However, Freeman subsequently pursued the matter and the case was turned over to Bridgeport police.
The officer has actually been arrested for it, which is the truly shocking part of the story.
