A police officer was arrested on a charge of domestic assault after allegedly threatening her teenage daughter with a gun because she didn’t do house chores, police in Missouri said.

Memphis police said that they have arrested 42-year-old Officer Michele Miller, after threatening to shoot holes in her daughter’s swimming pool because she had not cleaned the house.

Around 2:30 p.m., police were notified about the dispute at Miller’s home.

Miller’s teen daughter told police that Miller had returned from a trip on Sunday, and was upset that the chores were not completed.

The daughter was in the pool when her mother came outside with a gun and threatened to shoot holes in the pool if she didn’t come inside.

Witnesses at the scene said that Miller pointed the gun at her daughter. Miller was placed on leave without pay, pending the outcome of the investigation. Miller was charged with domestic assault.

She was booked into jail, and her bail was set at $2,500.
