LUBBOCK, Texas — According to a police report, a Lynn County Sheriff Deputy pointed a pistol at his newlywed.

On Friday, August 14, an off duty Lubbock Police officer, working at one of the hospitals in Lubbock, overheard a conversation about domestic violence involving the victim and the suspect, the deputy, the police report said.

The victim’s coworker and other ER staff were speaking about the victim filing for divorce after discovering that her husband cheated on her, the police report said.

After overhearing the conversation, and due to the officer knowing both the victim and the deputy personally, the officer asked the coworker what happened, the police report stated.

The coworker said the victim had recently found out about the suspect cheating and that the suspect had pointed a pistol at the victim and threatened to commit suicide the week prior, the police report said.

The police report said the victim had to ask the suspect to put the gun down multiple times before the suspect complied.

The coworker said that the victim did not want to notify the police, according to the police report.

Because charges have not yet been filed, the deputy’s name was not released.
