The husband of Los Angeles County Dist. Atty. Jackie Lacey is facing multiple misdemeanor charges in connection with a March incident in which he waved a gun at protesters outside his Granada Hills home, a law enforcement official told the Los Angeles Times.

The California attorney general’s office, which was investigating the matter due to the conflict of interest for local prosecutors, made the decision to bring charges earlier this week, according to the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity due to the ongoing investigation.

David Lacey is being charged with three counts of assault with a firearm, according to a charging document obtained by Politico.

The chaotic scene unfolded on March 2, when protesters affiliated with Black Lives Matter L.A. and other local organizations descended on Lacey’s Granada Hills home for a pre-dawn protest. Several of the demonstrators knocked on Lacey’s door, and her husband answered brandishing a handgun.

    I don’t know the entire story but Jackie Lacey, herself , in my opinion, is not a friend of the public. She is good at protecting police from any charges of misconduct. That is a different story. As to this story, I believe based on my understanding that Mr. Lacey was in his own home. As such I believe he has every right to open the door of his home armed. While this was not very appropriate behavior for the spouse of a public official, I believe he was well within his rights. I read nothing that accuses him of going out on the public sidewalk and threatening anyone so I see he has every right to answer the door as he did – it is he ans his wife’s property.
