Former Tucson Police Department Officer Kyle James McCartin.
Off-duty Tuscon Police Officer Kyle James McCartin, 23, and a friend entered the station early Tuesday shirtless beyond the bulletproof vests and appeared to be intoxicated, according to the station clerk.
In the security-camera footage, the men made no attempts to disguise themselves or hide their faces. Both of the men appear to pay for their goods.
Following the completion of their transactions, the two men left the station on foot. They were later apprehended by McCartin’s colleagues at Tuscon PD.
McCartin, on the force since September, has been fired and booked into the Pima County Adult Detention Center charged with two felony counts of aggravated assault.
