Tucson Police Officer Kyle James McCartin
When a drunk man stumbled into a Tucson gas station and started pointing a gun at the clerk, there already was a cop inside.

Unfortunately, the Pima County Sheriff's Department says the cop was the drunk guy pointing a gun around.

It happened shortly after 3 a.m. Tuesday, as two guys came into the store together, shirtless but wearing ballistic vests.

As you can see from the surveillance footage, one of the guys points a gun right at the clerk.



According to the Sheriff's Office, the man pointing the gun was identified as 23-year-old Tucson Police Officer Kyle James McCartin and was found by detectives in a nearby apartment complex.

McCartin never said anything while pointing the gun at the clerk, but the clerk told detectives he was scared for his life, which is understandable.

McCartin was booked into county jail on two counts of aggravated assault.

In Arizona, a citizen who is packing heat could have legally shot this douchebag for his crime and been justified under the law. ACAB!

Just another gun-rights advocate, taking back America from the liberals.

It's a shame because I bet McCartin has already been let out by pretrial services.

What happened to the second guy?  He certainly is not an innocent bystander on this.

I'll also note how oddly similar he looks to Stallone in Rambo III which featured Rambo in a black tank top.

Look at that - a cop exercising his second amendment rights.  You know, his right to bare arms. Get it - no sleeves.  I just crack myself up sometimes.

There's a career cut short, I would hope.

@bvckvs You are right, only police and military should have firearms! 


Oh wait.....

@royalphoenix It is one that requires a prison sentence be imposed.  Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon is a big deal.  This guy ruined not only his career but his life with a foolish night on the town. 

It's for the best...
