Share/Save/Bookmark

FORT SMITH, Arkansas — A judge has delayed a hearing in the case of a former Arkansas police officer accused of pointing a gun at a child in eastern Oklahoma.

Namaan Matthew Adcock of Muldrow, Oklahoma, is charged with feloniously pointing a firearm and a misdemeanor count of reckless conduct with a firearm. Authorities allege that Adcock threatened to shoot a 5-year-boy and pointed a weapon at deputies when they arrived at the home.

Adcock was due in court Wednesday, but Sequoyah County District Court Judge Larry Langley granted a request from the defense to delay proceedings. The Southwest Times Record reports (http://bit.ly/1qyQcd4 ) that Adcock is now due in court Aug. 20.

Adcock resigned from the Fort Smith Police Department May 28. He had been a patrol officer and employee since May 2011.
