A Ferguson police officer was arrested in Maplewood on Friday and has been fired as a result.

Police said officer Jesse Kline threatened two people with a gun Thursday night and was arrested a few hours later.

Ferguson Police Chief Delrish Moss said immediately after he learned about the incident, he fired officer Kline.

He said the allegations are in no way a reflection of the hard-working people in the Ferguson Police Department.
