Security officer discharges weapon during auto burglary incident www.privateofficer.com
OKLAHOMA CITY OK Sept 30 2011 – A retired police officer working security accidentally fired his gun outside a metro club and restaurant.
It happened around 1:00 Thursday morning, when the guard for Olive Garden saw a man breaking into a vehicle near Baker Street Pub and Grill.
The guard approached the suspect and that’s when the gun went off.
“The subject had made a movement like he was going for a weapon and that’s when the security guard, who had his weapon drawn, took a step back,” said Captain Nate Tarver with the Oklahoma City Police Department. “I think he stumbled a little bit and accidentally discharged a round.”
No one was hit. Police said 44-year-old Chade Martin was arrested, though, for destruction of property and public drunkenness.
