FORT SMITH, Ark. (AP) - A Fort Smith police officer has resigned after being arrested for allegedly pointing a gun at a child and at deputies at his home near Muldrow, Oklahoma.

Police say 40-year-old Naaman Adcock resigned Wednesday after being placed on administrative leave following his arrest early Tuesday by Sequoyah County deputies who were responding to reports of shots fired at Adcock’s home.

Authorities allege that Adcock threatened to shoot a 5-year-boy and pointed a weapon at deputies when they arrived at the home.

Adcock says he fired shots inside his home, but that no one was at home at the time.
