OKLAHOMA CITY – An Oklahoma City police officer has officially been charged for domestic abuse.
Mustang police officers were called to a home in the 700 block of East Olivia Terrance in May on reports of a domestic abuse incident.
According to the probable cause statement, MSgt. Greg Driskill and the victim were arguing about the victim going on a family trip on April 30.
The argument became heated and authorities allege Driskill put a gun to the victim’s head and threatened to shoot her.
The next day, the affidavit states the victim was sitting on a stool when Driskill allegedly pushed her, causing her to hit her lower back on a step by the bathtub.
The victim called police, saying Driskill still had a gun and was threatening to kill himself.
When they arrived, they took Driskill, a 16-year veteran with the Oklahoma City Police Department, into custody on one complaint of domestic abuse and one complaint of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
He was booked into the Mustang Municipal Jail.
On Tuesday, Driskill was formally charged in Canadian County District Court with feloniously pointing a firearm and domestic abuse.
Officials say Driskill continues to be on administrative leave from the Oklahoma City Police Department.
