A Dallas police officer was arrested in Kentucky on Christmas Day.
Zanae Shavon Humphries, 32, is accused of firing a gun in the direction of her child's father.
No one was hit by the bullet.
Humphries was arrested on a charge of wanton endangerment in the first degree. Kentucky law explains the charge as a person "wantonly engaged in conduct which created a substantial danger of death of serious physical injury to another person."
The charge is a Class D felony and punishable by up to five years in prison.
Humphries was released from jail on $5,000 bail.
Dallas Police said Humphries will officially be placed on administrative leave when she gets back to town.
