A part-time Missouri police officer is under investigation for allegedly pointing a handgun at her daughter over unfinished chores, local WGEM reports.

Michele Miller, 42, was charged with misdemeanor domestic assault and has been released after posting bond, the station reports. Miller is a part-time officer with the Kahoka Police Department.

WGEM reports Miller came home from a trip on Sunday and became angry at her daughter for not doing her chores. The girl told police her mother threatened her with a handgun and told her, "it would only take one bullet and she wouldn't have to be here."

Miller has been placed on unpaid leave pending the investigation. She's been on the force for about one year.
