A domestic dispute in Hamlin, New York, led to an off-duty deputy firing his weapon and charges against an estranged husband. The incident happened on Monday, August 27. WHEC NBC Channel 10 in Rochester published a story about the incident.
At around 7:00 pm on Monday, August 27, 31-years-old Matthew Demming illegally entered a residence where his wife was staying. By entering, Demming violated a protection order. He also shoved an unidentified individual into the wall and threatened a different individual with a pair of scissors.
Demming left but when he returned he got into an altercation with an off-duty deputy. The deputy fired his weapon once. The bullet didn’t strike Demming. The suspect did suffer an injury to his head after cutting it during the fight.
Authorities placed the deputy, identified as James Akins, on administrative leave. Deputies arrested Demming and charged him with aggravated criminal contempt, burglary, assault and menacing.
