DENVER (CBS4) – A deputy with the Denver County Sheriff’s Department faces a felony menacing charge.
The 17th Judicial District Attorney’s Office filed the charges on Thursday for the incident that happened on Nov. 6.
Officials say Bret Carbone pointed a gun at a process server who served legal documents at Carbone’s home in Commerce City.
The victim told police he is an investigator and was working for a Colorado state department. He says he was serving papers for a collections agency.
Court documents state that Carbone answered the door and denied being Bret Carbone and said he was “only there for the dogs.”
The victim then returned to his car and searched Carbone on Facebook and determined the man at the door was in fact Carbone.
Once the victim walked back to the door, Carbone opened the door holding a handgun, according to court documents.
Officials say Carbone pointed the pistol at the victim twice before putting it away. The incident was recorded by the victim.
Carbone is expected in an Adams County courtroom for a disposition hearing in December.
