Los Angeles District Attorney Jackie Lacey's husband has been charged by the CA AG for allegedly pointing a gun at Black Lives Matter protesters in March.
California Attorney General Xavier Becerra filed three misdemeanor charges on Monday against David Lacey for assault with a firearm for the March 2 incident, according to a US News and World Report story.
The charges were first reported by Politico.
David Lacey allegedly said "I will shoot you" to the protesters in March one day before the primary election outside the couple's home.
“He’s profoundly sorry,” said DA Jackie Lacey of her husband, who allegedly pulled a gun on a protester outside their home. “He meant no one any harm.”
DA Lacey is in a runoff in November for her third term.
According to an Associated Press story from March, "Black Lives Matter organizers spurned Lacey's apology during a separate news conference. They said they were “traumatized."
