Fire capt. charged with showing gun in argument

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - Police say a New Haven fire captain has been charged with reckless endangerment after he allegedly displayed a handgun during an argument with an acting fire captain while the two were on duty.

Police say Richard Rife was charged with the misdemeanor and released on a promise to appear in court.

Lt. Frank Ricci told police that during an argument on Monday Rife pulled a handgun from a holster and displayed it to him and two other firefighters.

Ricci was the lead plaintiff in a reverse discrimination case that a group of white firefighters won before the U.S. Supreme Court in 2009.

Police say the argument had nothing to do with the court case.

A phone listing for Rife was busy. A message left with Ricci was not immediately returned.
