• Former Tulsa reserve deputy charged after firing weapon at gun show

    Updated:

    TULSA, Okla. - The Tulsa County District Attorney’s Office charged a man Friday after he allegedly fired a gun by accident at the Wanenmacher’s Tulsa Arms Show last weekend.

    Brian Pounds, who works for the Tulsa County Tax Assessor’s Office, was charged with reckless conduct of a firearm.

    FOX23 learned that Pounds served as a reserve deputy with the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office from 2002-2005. He’s currently a reserve officer with Collinsville police.

    District Attorney Steve Kunzweiler released the following statement:

    The Tulsa County District Attorney's Office received reports today regarding the recent discharge of a firearm at the Tulsa Fairgrounds.  We reviewed those reports and filed a misdemeanor charge of Reckless Conduct with a Firearm.  The law presumes that every person charged with a crime is innocent until a judge or a jury determines otherwise.  That same standard applies to Mr. Pounds.
    There are occasions in which a person is identified as the victim of a crime.  The State may take into consideration the wishes of the victim, but ultimately the decision to file is based upon the law and the evidence.  I personally spoke with the identified victim in this case before a decision to file was made.
