(ABC News) – A White House staffer is facing assault charges after shooting at a Capitol Police officer using the cop’s own gun after a lover’s quarrel, police said.

The White House has placed Barvetta Singletary, a special assistant to the president and the House legislative affairs liaison, on “unpaid leave and revoked her access to the complex until we have more information,” a White House spokesperson told ABC News.

According to a charging statement from the District Court of Maryland for Prince George’s County, Singletary texted the Capitol Police officer around 2:30 a.m. Friday inviting him to her Upper Marlboro, Maryland residence for sex.

After he arrived at her home, they “engaged in a brief sexual encounter” at which point Singletary started questioning him about another woman he was dating, the documents said.

Singletary’s relationship with the officer was not clear.
