SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Authorities in Northern California have launched an investigation into the arrest of an off-duty police officer who is accused of flashing a gun at a server at a restaurant last weekend.
San Francisco Police Department spokesman Sgt. Eric O'Neal says 24-year-old Oakland Police Officer Kevin Kelly, who was off duty at the time at an IHOP restaurant in San Francisco's Marina district, brandished his gun to the woman at about 2:40 p.m. Sunday in what appeared to be an attempt to impress her.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports (http://bit.ly/1bAPpCj ) that Kelly pointed the gun in the woman's direction and at the ceiling of the restaurant, causing her enough concern that she reported the incident to the San Francisco Police Department.
The Chronicle reports that Kelly, a Marine Corps veteran, told officers that he had been drinking Saturday night.
