Surveillance Video Catches Drunk Cop Point Gun At Store Clerk (Video)

| by Dominic Kelly

An off-duty police officer in Tucson, Arizona was fired after being caught on surveillance video pulling a gun on a convenience store clerk while seemingly intoxicated.

23-year-old Kyle James McCartin was arrested and charged with two counts of aggravated assault for the incident. According to reports, McCartin and another man walked into the gas station convenience store wearing bulletproof vests, and McCartin was, according to multiple reports, "visibly drunk."

While the other man was paying for his items, McCartin proceeded to stumble around close to the register and pull out his gun on the cashier. His friend appears to try and stop him, but McCartin, clearly belligerent, keeps waving the gun at the store clerk. Eventually, both men leave, and later, the local sheriff’s department came to investigate.

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

Now, McCartin has officially been fired and has pleaded guilty to the charges against him. He had only been a Tucson police department for less than a year when the incident occurred. Reports claim that despite pleading guilty and being fired from his job as a police officer, he will probably not serve any jail time.
