A Denver sheriff’s deputy has been suspended after being charged with a felony for pulling a gun on a process server who was attempting to hand him papers seeking payment on an overdue bill.
In video provided to KUSA, Bret Martin Carbone is seen pointing a gun at Tom Mills after Mills knocked on his door and tried to hand him the legal documents.
According to Mills, he films all of his interactions as proof that he did his job, but was surprised to see a gun pointed out him.
“I don’t like going up to the houses in the afternoons and evenings anymore,” Tom Mills explained. “I’ve had people upset where they yell at you, call you names. But the physical part of bringing up a gun and holding it to you, I’ve never experienced that in my last 25 years. $150 is all he was being served for.”
In the video, recorded in two parts, Mills is seen knocking on Carbone’s door who lies to Mills about his identity. After double checking the address and his information, Mills knocks on the door again, only to be greeted by a handgun pointed at him.
Informed by Mills that he was just being served with papers, Carbone threatened him saying, “You’re going to put that down and get off my property. This is my property and I can do what I want!”
“Being a Marine, you’d think you’d be trained to have somebody hold a gun to you and you not be scared, it scared the bejeebes out of me,” Mills said. “I’ve never had somebody hold a gun to me. There was no purpose in it. I don’t understand what he was thinking by pulling the gun.”
According to the report, Carbone — who started working for the Denver Sheriff Department in January, 2016 — was immediately put on administrative leave and has been charged with felony menacing for the Nov. 6 incident.
Carbone is due back in court on December 19.

Trump is ‘having a full-blown mental breakdown’ and needs to resign: Ex-Trump staffer
Leading Republican elected officials should work with President Donald Trump's family to negotiate him resigning from office, a former top White House official suggested on MSNBC on Friday.
Former White House press secretary Anthony Scaramucci blasted his former boss during an interview with Chuck Todd on MSNBC's "Meet the Press Daily."
"He has totally and completely lost it. There is nobody that can look at the situation, read the tweets, look at the press sprays, and say he hasn’t lost it," Scaramucci argued.
"What does that mean, lost it?" Todd asked. "Define that."
Obama’s chief economist warns of ‘a very high chance’ Trump’s trade war could cause 2020 recession
The former chair of the Council of Economic Advisers under President Barack Obama warned of "a very high chance" of Trump's trade war with China resulting in a recession -- "just in time for 2020."
Austan Goolsbee was interviewed by MSNBC's John Heilemann on Friday after the DJIA closed down over 600 points after the trade war escalated on Friday.
"Just give us, if you would, Austan, your sense of what has unfolded today and how bad it is," Heilemann asked.
"Yes, it’s terrible, I'm phoning from a bunker as we speak," Goolsbee replied.
"There hasn’t been a day like this in a very long time. Yes, the markets sell a lot but the fact we’re going to have an escalating trade war, the president of the United States is publicly declaring the head of the Fed an enemy of the state and, oh, by the way, 40% of the Amazon is on fire and Ruth Bader Ginsburg is being treated for pancreatic cancer," he continued. "If this is on a Friday, it makes it bad for Monday."
Trump responds to China raising tariffs — by raising tariffs on over half a trillion dollars in Chinese goods
After US markets tanked on Friday, President Donald Trump dramatically escalated his trade war with China.
"For many years China (and many other countries) has been taking advantage of the United States on trade, intellectual property theft, and much more. Our country has been losing hundreds of billions of dollars a year to China, with no end in sight," Trump tweeted.
"Sadly, past Administrations have allowed China to get so far ahead of fair and balanced trade that it has become a great burden to the American taxpayer. As President, I can no longer allow this to happen," he argued.
