OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma City police officer on paid leave since a domestic altercation in April will face a firearms charge in connection with the incident.

Police say Sgt. Cecil Moss will be charged with pointing a firearm at another person while he was off-duty and not in uniform.

A heavily redacted police report says Moss was helping a woman gather items from a house when the father of the woman’s two children arrived with one of the children in his vehicle. The report says the man tried to take the other child from the home, but fled.

It says Moss went into the street and pointed his gun at the man as he apparently drove at Moss. Moss said he didn’t fire because of the child in the vehicle - which “brushed” his leg as he avoided it.

Police did not know if Moss has an attorney.
