A Dallas police officer faces a misdemeanor charge of discharging a weapon after she fired a revolver in a squad car during a drunken off-duty incident.
Two on-duty patrol officers, Miguel Jamaica and Zachary Helm, came to the bar to help get Beemer under control, police said. Helm had been dating Beemer, police said.
"I swear you need to stop now," she said just before pulling a revolver from her ankle holster and firing into the floorboard. Helm jumped out of the vehicle, demanding repeatedly that she drop the gun.
Brown said Helm and Jamaica made a "good faith effort to assist a fellow officer" but should have arrested her for public intoxication once it became clear she was a danger to herself and others.

I think in-training LEO's should get further precautionary training for these types of events, because they will happen at some point in their careers.
