Dallas Police Officer Charged With Manslaughter

Dallas police officer Amber Guyger, 30, who claims to have entered the apartment of 26-year-old Botham Jean, mistook it for her own, and shot and killed him has been charged with manslaughter. Guyger was booked into Kaufman County Jail on Sunday but was later released after posting a $300,000 bond.

Investigators say that Guyger, a four-year veteran of the Dallas Police Department, shot Jean at around 10 p.m. Thursday, when she returned to her apartment building in the South Side Flats following her shift. She reported the shooting to dispatchers and she told officers who responded that she had mistaken Jean’s apartment for her own. (FOX)

Sources say, authorities took blood samples from the officer to check for alcohol and drugs. Those results have not yet been released to the public.
