President Obama’s special assistant was Friday arrested and placed on unpaid leave for allegedly shooting at her boyfriend using his gun during an intense argument.
Barvetta Singletary, 37 is an assistant to the President and the House legislative affairs liaison. According to Dailymail, Barvetta is reported to have confronted her boyfriend who is a Capitol Hill police office about an affair before she grabbed his two phones and a 40 Caliber Glock service weapon.
‘You taught me how to use this. Don’t think I won’t use it,’ Singletary told her boyfriend after he refused to give her the phone password. According to the arrest warrant she pointed the gun at him and fired one round and the officer fled from her house.
“We are aware of the matter and have temporarily placed the employee in question on unpaid leave and revoked her access to the complex until we have more information,” said a White House attendant to Daily Mail.
Singleton was arrested Friday and charged with domestic violence and also had her access to White House revoked according to CNN. She was released Monday on a $75,000 (Sh7.5 million) bond.
