CLEVELAND-- A Cleveland police officer will soon face a judge on a felony weapon charge.

Tuesday, the Fox 8 I-Team broke the story about an internal investigation regarding Officer Sean Gorman's alleged actions while off-duty at the Clark Bar in Tremont.

According to a charge paper filed in municipal court, Gorman was charged after he was seen "brandishing a black-colored handgun while in the process of consuming several alcohol beverages."

A woman called 911 Nov. 24 around 8:15 p.m. saying the off-duty officer was seen with the gun and that he fired a shot inside the bar.

A supervisor, who responded to the scene, told a dispatcher it was not a gunshot, but fireworks. The 911 caller disagreed.

Gorman is not charged with firing the gun. He is free on bond.
