Barvetta Singletary who is known to be a Special Assistant to President Obama as well as a House Legislative Affairs Liaison was arrested for domestic violence after firing a gun at her boyfriend. The kicker is that the boyfriend is a U.S. Capital Police Officer.
Below is the report by NBC highlighting the exact details of what transpired:
According to charging documents, Barvetta Singletary sent her boyfriend a text on Friday, asking him to come to her Upper Marlboro home for sex. After they had sex, Singletary confronted her boyfriend about other woman he was dating.
Investigators say Singletary asked her boyfriend to step outside, and they both went to his car. Once inside the car, police say Singletary asked to see her boyfriend’s cellphones. When he refused, Singletary reached into his bag and retrieved two cell phones and the victim’s .40 caliber Glock 23 service weapon, charging documents state.
Singletary ran back into her home and the victim followed, pleading with her to return his weapon.
Police say Singletary demanded that the victim give her the passwords to the phones, but he refused.
Singletary then pulled the gun out of its holster, pointed it at the victim and said, “You taught me how to use this. Don’t think I won’t use it,” the arrest warrant said.
When the victim again refused to give her the passwords, Singletary said, “Your phone is more important than me holding the gun on you.”
Police say Singletary pointed the gun in the victim’s direction and fired one round.
Fearing for his life, the victim ran away from the home. The victim told police he saw Singletary wipe the gun down with a towel. He then called 911.
Singletary was placed on unpaid leave and has had her White House access revoked.
I think we can learn a few things from this story.
First, never have a loaded pistol near your angry girlfriend that thinks you’re cheating. Second, the White House has been very adamant about strict gun control and then a White House staff member tries shooting a cop with his own weapon (ironic). Lastly, D.C. has some of the strictest laws on firearms and yet this officer was almost shot (albeit with his own weapon). That just proves the point that criminals will find a way to shoot those that they want to shoot no matter how strict the law is.
