BEND, Oregon (KRON) — A Vallejo police officer is at the center of an investigation that he pulled a gun on people in an Oregon bar.
Television station KTVZ quotes witnesses who say Sgt. Michael Kent Tribble of the Vallejo police department pulled a gun during a confrontation with a birthday party at a series of Bend bars.
The station quotes Dustin Pomeroy as saying Tribble pointed the weapon at him when he tried to diffuse the fight.
“All of a sudden, when (Tribble) pointed it at me, I was just like, ‘Oh God,” Pomeroy said Tuesdsay. “I put my hands up, and I was just like, ‘I don’t want no problems man. I don’t have anything. Put the gun away.’ But he wasn’t listening.”
Bend police say they are investigating but haven’t made any arrests noting “intoxicants were involved.”
Vallejo police declined to comment on the incident. Police in Oregon say they are interviewing witnesses and reviewing surveillance tape before deciding if charges should be brought. No one was hurt and no shots were fired.
