Senior White House Aide Arrested For Firing Gun At Boyfriend Cop
A special assistant to President Barack Obama and White House liaison to the House of Representatives, Barvetta Singletary, was arrested in Upper Marlboro, Maryland late Friday after her boyfriend, a Capitol Hill police officer, said she held him at gunpoint and fired one round at him. Police say Singletary summoned the unnamed boyfriend to her home for sex on Friday. Afterward, police say she followed her boyfriend to his car and began accusing him of having sex with other women. Singletary allegedly took the boyfriend's service weapon and his cell phone, demanding passwords to unlock messages stored on the cell phone. "You taught me how to use this,” Singletary allegedly told the man. “Don't think I won't use it." Singletary allegedly pointed the gun in the direction of her boyfriend and fired one round before he fled on foot from the car. Singletary, who previously served as deputy chief of staff and policy director for U.S. Rep. James Clyburn (D-SC), has been placed on unpaid leave from her White House job.
