Los Angeles District Attorney’s Husband Charged with Pulling Gun on BLM Protesters

Associated Press, Washington Times, August 4, 2020

The husband of the Los Angeles district attorney has been charged with pointing a gun at Black Lives Matter members who demonstrated outside the couple’s home the day before the primary election in March.

The attorney general filed three misdemeanor charges Monday against David Lacey for assault with a firearm for the March 2 incident.

Authorities say Lacey, 66, pointed a gun at demonstrators who protested outside the couple’s home before dawn on March 2 and said “I will shoot you.”

District Attorney Jackie Lacey offered a tearful apology at the time, saying she and her husband were awoken by the protest and were frightened.
