    An on-duty Dallas police officer gave a female off-duty police officer a ride home last night when her gun went off inside his car, police said

    Dallas police said the on-duty police officer was concerned the female off-duty police officer had partied too much with friends and wasn’t able to drive safely home.

    Investigators said an altercation between the two happened as the pair headed west on Gaston Avenue. The gun went off when they reached Abrams. 

    Neither officer was hurt.

    Minutes later another off-duty officer showed up at the scene.

    Investigators said the incident was possibly an accidental discharge, an assault charge is unlikely and no criminal charges were filed.

    Police will interview both officers later today, after the booze has worn off.'s Kim Fischer contributed to this report.
