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.

New biographer claims she knows how Kim Jong Un will die
A new biography about Kim Jong Un by Anna Fifield is uncovering many of the unique moments in the childhood of the North Korean dictator. But one piece that isn't included in the book is her prediction for how the leader will die.
In a CNN interview with Brian Todd, Fifield explained that Kim's chain-smoking, drinking and consumption of rich and fatty foods would likely be his undoing. She doesn't anticipate he'll ever have a coup d'etat, but he could probably have a heart attack.
Other shocking observations she made include that Kim's parents had to bring in children so that he would have someone to play with him, effectively meaning his "friends" were paid for.
Black Republican: Cops ‘treat their dogs better than they treat us’
Black Republican political commentator Shermichael Singleton was part of a panel discussing the Phoenix police department that violently arrested the parents of a little girl who walked out of a dollar store with a doll.
The incident occurred months ago, but only now the footage is being released by police, revealing the way the family was treated.
Democratic strategist Joel Payne seemed appalled at the police in the video and the mark that likely left on the children who experienced it.
"I think about that young man talking about his child, and this is their first interaction with police," he said, noting Father's Day. "And that is the life, that's the life lesson that that child is being taught is that in that moment, that police officer was trying to hurt her and to hurt her parents. That's unacceptable."
US attacks Russia’s power grid — but Trump was kept in the dark about it
The New York Times is reporting that the United States is cyber attacking Russia's electric power grid and other targets—and that President Donald Trump is being kept out of the loop.
"The American strategy has shifted more toward offense, officials say, with the placement of potentially crippling malware inside the Russian system at a depth and with an aggressiveness that had never been tried before."
Trump has not been briefed on the operation because of “the possibility that he might countermand it or discuss it with foreign officials.”
