DETROIT (WXYZ) — Detroit Police Officer Diamond Greenwood's career appears to be on thin ice now that the 26-year-old is facing multiple charges including felonious assault, brandishing a weapon in public, and possession of firearms under the influence.

The charges stem from a chaotic incident during a wedding reception last October. There were arguments involving several people that escalated into fights.

Investigators allege Greenwood was intoxicated when she pulled out her department-issued gun and began pointing it at several people.

Investigators say Greenwood's brother, Terry Catchings, then had her firearm and allegedly fired it while inside the reception hall.

Catchings, 24, is now facing multiple charges including Felon in Possession.

In 2014, Catchings was charged with First Degree Murder. A jury found him not guilty of murder but guilty of a weapons charge.

Greenwood and her brother are due back in court next month.
