CA - Deputy arrested in gun incident
A Monterey County sheriff's deputy will be arraigned today for allegedly giving a gun to a convicted felon, who playfully aimed the loaded weapon at other patrons at a downtown Palo Alto bar.
Deputy Sean Brooks, 34, faces charges of aiding and abetting a felony because he gave his gun to Ryan Barry, 23, of Palo Alto, who is a felon, according to the Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office.
Felons are not allowed to hold firearms, and Barry will face felony charges of possessing a firearm.
Brooks has been assigned to the Monterey County Jail since being hired by the department in October 2002, said sheriff's Cmdr. Tracy Brown.
Brooks was in custody at the Santa Clara County Jail on Thursday and was placed on administrative leave pending an internal investigation into whether he violated any laws or department policies, Brown said Thursday.
The gun incident occurred Tuesday night at the Rose & Crown Pub. Details of Barry's felony record were not immediately available.
Assistant District Attorney Karyn Sinunu said the weapon, which was not Brooks' department-issued handgun, had a laserscope on it, and Barry shifted the beam from target to target in the bar, switching back and forth from customers to the dart boards.
