The Obama White House aide who was indicted Tuesday for allegedly shooting at her Capitol Police boyfriend in August resigned from her position three weeks after being placed on unpaid administrative leave.
According to police, Barvetta Singletary, a special assistant to the president and legislative liaison at the White House, grabbed the officer’s firearm from a bag and fired once in his direction following a “sexual encounter.”
The incident began early Friday morning after Singletary texted the officer “asking him to come to her residence…for sexual intercourse,” according to charging documents, which classified the incident as domestic violence.
After “a brief sexual encounter,” Singletary began asking the officer about another woman he was dating and tried to access his cell phones.
Singletary then grabbed the officer’s service weapon from a bag and pointed it at him, before firing one round toward him, documents say.
“You taught me how to use this, don’t think I won’t use it,” Singletary allegedly said before firing one round, according to the police report. She then allegedly wiped down the gun with a towel.
Singletary faces charges in Prince George’s County, Maryland.
She was indicted for first and second degree assault, reckless endangerment and use of a handgun in the commission of a crime of violence.
It’s worth noting that firing a gun at one’s boyfriend is not enough to get a person fired from her position in the Obama White House. Barvetta Singletary quit.
Because accountability is for the little people.
