    Guess if you have a cop buddy, you can carry a gun in a bar.

    In CA there are no laws prohibiting the carrying of guns in bars.
    It sounds like he's being investigated for "brandishing", and they even got the definition right.

    Yet another example of how if you have a certain type of job, the criminal justice system doesn't apply to you. You get this whole separate "internal investigation" process which throws down such punishments as written reprimands and paid time off. Yet another flagrant violation of the equal protection clause of the fourteenth amendment. Thank god our government works so well.

    In that article I see no indication that the "internal investigation" is the ONLY thing happening. It says nothing about whether the case was referred to the DA, nor does it indicate if charges have been dropped.

    Sounds to me like this guy will possibly lose his job in addition to criminal penalties.

    For the life of me I can't remember the PC section for brandishing, and my search skills are tired and a bit hung over... so I'm not certain, but I think brandishing is a misdemeanor. LEOs aren't allowed to arrest for misdemeanors unless it occurs in their presence; otherwise, they issue you a citation and release you. (There is an exception if they can't positively ID a criminal suspect.)

    Update!

    He's being charged with brandishing but look what he did before the brandishing.
