KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ A Kansas City, Kan., police officer resigned and pleaded guilty to misdemeanor battery in an off-duty shooting last Christmas.
The U.S. District Attorney's office says in a news release that 32-year-old Michael Mills also pleaded no contest Monday to two misdemeanor counts of criminal restraint.
Mills initially faced felony counts of aggravated assault and criminal discharge of a weapon. Prosecutors said he fired at an occupied vehicle near his home in western Wyandotte County. No one was injured. A motive was not disclosed.
Under the plea, Mills will serve 30 days in jail and be on probation for 18 months. If he violates probation, he could serve up to two years in jail.
He also was required to surrender his firearm and his certification as a Kansas law enforcement officer.
