Domestic violence is a subject that draws significant attention today, but is often misunderstood in the criminal context.
A Denver police officer is facing serious criminal allegations after he apparently discharged a firearm inside his home. Official reports show that the man, age 42, is accused of domestic violence, child abuse and weapons violations, among other offenses. He allegedly shot his own ceiling six times. He told authorities that he had been popping bubble wrap. However, spent bullets and shell casings were found on the floor of the man's home.
