Special assistant to the President, Barvetta Singletary, has been placed on unpaid leave as she shot at her ‘boyfriend’ after questioning him about other women.
Here are the details via ABC News:
According to a charging statement from the District Court of Maryland for Prince George’s County, Singletary texted the Capitol Police officer around 2:30 a.m. Friday inviting him to her Upper Marlboro, Maryland residence for sex.
After he arrived at her home, they “engaged in a brief sexual encounter” at which point Singletary started questioning him about another woman he was dating, the documents said.
Singletary’s relationship with the officer was not clear.
According to the document, when he refused to answer the questions, Singletary asked him to step outside the home and the two walked to his Cadillac Escalade. Singletary then entered the car and asked where the officer’s cellphones were. When he didn’t answer, she reached into his bag and picked up his phones and a .40 caliber Glock 23 service weapon, the documents say.
She then ran into the house with the gun, and he followed her in. After he refused to give her his cellphone passwords, she allegedly pointed the Glock handgun at him and said, “You taught me how to use this, don’t think I wont use it.” The charging statement says she then racked the gun.
According to the document, at a later point, she asked him for the password to his phones again. When he refused, she asked him, “Your phone is more important than me holding this gun on you?”
Singletary then allegedly pointed the gun at him as he sat on a couch 10 feet away and fired one round in his direction, the document said.
The officer, who was not hit, then gathered his belongings, fled the home and called police.
The U.S. Capitol Police, which employs the victim, said it is investigating the situation.
If you have to question a man about his phone, you shouldn’t be dealing with him. Singletary works close with the President of the United States, the PRESIDENT. Do you know how many people would kill for a job like that? She can probably kiss her career goodbye after this incident.
