RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — A Wake County Sheriff’s Office deputy has been fired after an incident earlier this year involving a gun in Durham, officials said Saturday.
Jordan Christopher Maith, 25, of Knightdale, was a deputy with the sheriff’s office when authorities say he pointed a gun during an incident in Durham in mid-April, according to a news release from the Wake County Sheriff’s Office.
Wake County officials said Sunday Maith was not on duty at the time and his agency-issued gun was not involved.
Maith was charged with assault by pointing a gun, according to arrest records.
Maith was arrested Friday after an investigation by the Wake County Sheriff’s Office Internal Affairs Division, according to arrest records and the news release.
“Upon discovery, Wake County Sheriff Gerald M. Baker opened the inquiry into the incident,” the news release said.
The investigation that Baker began “culminated in Maith’s termination,” the news release said.
No other details were released.
