Assistant Chief Brian Lee Kepler Arrested for pointing weapon at his wife

A small Craig County town is without an assistant police chief after the current officer was arrested Tuesday.

OSBI agents arrested Brian Lee Kepler Tuesday evening at the Amber Police Department.

Kepler, 35, was arrested for feloniously pointing a firearm.

Officials say the charge stems from an argument between he and his wife Aug. 24.

Kepler allegedly pointed his gun at his wife and spoke about a murder-suicide.

Agents say Kepler also waved the gun near the couple's two-year-old twin children and said, "Which one do you want me to shoot first?"

He was booked into the Grady County Jail Tuesday evening.
