A White House staffer is facing assault after shooting a Capitol Police officer because he did not give her his phone password.
According to the charge, Barvetta Singletary went over to the officer's house around 2:30 a.m., "engaged in a brief sexual encounter," then questioned him.
When the officer didn't answer the questions, she took him outside where she picked up a .40 caliber Gock 23 service weapon. Of course he ran and she followed after him. She asked him to give her his phone's password and soon after she says "You taught me how to use this, don't think I won't use it."
Following this, he continues to refuse and she says "your phone is more important than me holding this gun on you?"
Well, she fired the gun as he sat 10 feet away on the couch, firing one round toward him. Luckily the officer wasn't hit but obviously this is crazy.
“We are investigating the matter mindful of the underlying criminal investigation. Department employees are held to a high standard of conduct and the matter will receive a thorough review consistent with our policies and procedures,” Capitol Police told ABC News in a statement.
