A Toronto police officer, with 35 years of service, has been charged after two security guards had a gun pointed at them. Police say an off-duty officer pulled up to a security gate of a private residence early Monday morning in his own vehicle. While he was being questioned by a couple of private security guards, it’s alleged the officer took out his police issued firearm, and pointed it in their direction. He then drove away. 58 year old Constable William Hamilton has been charged with careless use of a firearm, pointing a firearm and weapons dangerous.
Was this officer still suspended or was he off duty?

A Toronto police officer has been charged with uttering a death threat.
The allegations stem from a telephone conversation that took place while the constable was on duty on Dec. 23, Const. Victor Kwong said.
The officer worked at 41 Division at Eglinton Ave. E. and Birchmount Rd. and has been with the police force for 31 years.
He has since been suspended from his job.
Const. William Hamilton, 55, faces one count of threatening death.
