Georgia Cop Arrested & Fired After Threatening to Kill Wife in Front of Daughter

A police officer in Duluth, GA has been fired following his arrest on a felony charge of terroristic threats and acts towards his wife. The cop claimed that his behavior was caused by his consumption of six beers.

Duluth Police Department Officer Keri McNaughton, 33, was arrested early Monday morning at his Buford home after allegedly threatening to shoot his wife in the head.

McNaughton was put on paid administrative leave after the arrest. After completing an internal investigation, the Duluth Police Department fired McNaughton on Thursday; he was on the force for four years. 

McNaughton’s daughter called 911 around 2 a.m. Monday January 14 after McNaughton and his wife had an altercation, CBS Atlanta reports.

McNaughton had told his wife to stop doing laundry and go to bed. McNaughton became angry and began yelling at his wife, saying he would “put a bullet in her head” and making hand motions resembling pulling a trigger. McNaughton threatened to kill everyone in the house and said “I will (expletive) murder you” to his wife.

When his daughter tried to intervene, McNaughton shouted that he would kill the kid and used a racial slur. It was then that the child ran into a bedroom and called 911.

When questioned by an officer, McNaughton said he had six beers around 4 p.m. that day. McNaughton was arrested and transported to the Gwinnett County Detention Center. He was released on $5,700 bond within seven hours of booking.

A statement from The Duluth Police Department reads:

“The Duluth Police Department does not tolerate or condone any type of criminal behavior or inappropriate statements made by any of its officers. The actions and statements made by Officer McNaughton during this incident do not represent the culture of our organization and as soon as we were made aware of this incident, we moved quickly to address the situation.”

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.
