A former Waterford police officer who allegedly fired his gun in public in late November while under the influence of alcohol has been charged with two weapons offenses.
Brian Mahoney was off duty at the time of the incident at 1:18 a.m. on Nov. 25, when he allegedly fired his weapon in front of the Crescent Lake Inn, located on Elizabeth Lake Road, in Waterford Township. No one was injured during the incident.
Apparently Mahoney had been laid off from the Waterford police force and was employed by Saginaw County at the time.
According to 51st District Court records, Mahoney is being charged with a pair of misdemeanor charges that include possession of a firearm while under the influence of alcohol and reckless use of a gun.
Mahoney is scheduled for a pre-trial hearing Tuesday, Feb. 8 at 1:30 p.m. with Judge Richard Kuhn Jr. presiding.
