A prosecutor is not filing endangerment charges against a Cocopah police chief after his gun landed in the hands of a six-year-old.
The Maricopa County Attorney's Office said no charges were filed against Cocopah Police Chief James Spurgeon.
Representative from the attorney’s office said it’s because prosecutors felt there was no reasonable likelihood of conviction.
It all stems from an incident where Spurgeon left his gun at an apartment. It was then picked up by a six-year-old boy who pointed it at his father.
The Cocopah Indian tribe said Spurgeon is on a leave of absence.
