WASHINGTON (AP) - A Washington police officer is facing an assault charge after officials say he fought an employee of a cell phone store.

The Washington Post (https://wapo.st/1Mky4QJ ) reports 43-year-old Ulysses Delaney fought the employee Wednesday evening while he was off-duty.

Delaney told police the employee of the store made obscene and threatening remarks to his girlfriend, according to an arrest affidavit. Delaney says he confronted the worker and fought him after the employee threatened to get a gun.

Delaney was arrested on a charge of simple assault and was released pending a court hearing Nov. 12.

The store employee, 20-year-old Curlee Walker, was also arrested and charged with making threats. His court hearing is also on Nov. 12.

In the affidavit, police say they could not determine who started the fight.
