LA County deputy accused of firing shots to scare pranksters

Tuesday, October 15, 2013

A Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy has been temporarily relieved of duty after he allegedly fired his gun in the air to scare a group of pranksters.

The department says Deputy Sung Pak was off-duty when some kids rang his doorbell in Santa Clarita and took off.

A spokesman says Pak tried to follow the kids to identify them, when some of the larger members of the group turned toward him in a threatening manner, and Pak allegedly fired a warning shot in the air.

The incident remains under investigation.
