Barvetta Singletary, 37, who serves as a special assistant to the president and House legislative affairs liaison, confronted her boyfriend, a U.S. Capitol Police officer, with his service weapon on Friday.
Singletary reportedly ran into the home while the man followed asking for his guns. Singletary allegedly refused to give the weapons back until he gave her the passwords to both cell phones.
According to the arrest warrant, Singletary took one of the weapons out of its holster and told the man, "You taught me how to use this. Don't think I won't use it."
When the man refused to give up the passwords to his phone, Singletary reportedly stated, "Your phone is more important than me holding the gun on you," before allegedly turning and firing a shot near him into a sofa where he was sitting.
The man ran from the house and called 911. According to authorities, he reported that he saw Singletary wiping the gun down with a towel as he was leaving.
Singletary was arrested at her home and charged with domestic violence. A White House spokesperson said that Singletary's presidential access has been revoked.
Singletary's actions have undoubtedly ruined her career. Her life long aspirations have been turned to ruin all because of one bad decision on one night.
