TUCSON, Ariz. (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.
Deputies were called to a Giant Gas Station and learned two men who appeared very intoxicated entered the store wearing bulletproof vests.
Authorities say one of the men pulled out a handgun and pointed it at the clerk twice.
Deputies found the men at a nearby apartment complex and the clerk identified McCartin as the man with the gun.
Police say McCartin was hired in September and was on probationary status.
It's unclear if he has a lawyer.
