TAHLEQUAH, Okla. (AP) - An Oklahoma police chief accused of putting a loaded handgun to his wife’s head has pleaded no contest to reduced charges.

The Tulsa World reports (https://bit.ly/1pgG2jn ) Beggs Police Chief Wesley Fish pleaded Monday to domestic abuse charges. He received a five-year deferred sentence.

Fish pleaded no contest to felony pointing of a firearm and misdemeanor domestic assault and battery. A charge of obstructing an officer was dismissed. A charge of possession of a firearm while committing a felony was previously dismissed.

Witnesses told authorities Fish pointed the gun at his wife and threatened to kill her after an argument in September. The prosecutor says the wife later denied it happened.

Fish has been on administrative leave without pay for several months and plans to address the city council Sept. 8.
