Grand Traverse County Prosecutor Will Not Issue Charges Against Deputy That Accidentally Discharged Gun

The Grand Traverse County prosecutor decided not to issue any charges against a sheriff’s deputy who accidentally discharged a gun last month.

The prosecutor says the deputy was performing routine firearms maintenance and practicing shooting drills.

The deputy didn’t think a round was in the chamber.

A bullet went through the wall of the recreational vehicles building in Garfield Township.

No one else was in the building and the deputy reported the incident right away.
