40-year-old Naaman Adcock, who worked for the Fort Smith Police Department, was arrested after deputies said he fired his gun inside his house and placed the gun on the head of his 5-year-old stepson.

At first, Adcock was placed on paid leave pending an internal investigation. However, he has since resigned.

Adcock was arrested on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm while intoxicated, reckless conduct with a firearm, feloniously pointing a firearm and child endangerment.

Deputies also arrested his wife, 31-year-old Tabitha Adcock, on allegations of failure to protect her child, child endangerment, possession of a firearm while intoxicated and reckless conduct with a firearm.

The sheriff’s office said that both the husband and wife fired shots inside their home in Sequoyah County, while at least two children were present.

Deputies seized nine weapons they found in the house.

Jail records show that bond for Adcock Naaman was set at $24,000 while bond for Tabitha Adcock was set at $14,000.
