A Houston police officer was in court Monday, charged with two counts of aggravated assault for allegedly putting a gun to the head of his estranged wife.

Precinct 4 deputy constables say that Officer Cedric Lincoln saw his wife's boyfriend's truck outside and he entered the home. He then confronted the couple while they slept in the bedroom and allegedly put a gun to his wife's head, threatening to kill her.

The boyfriend called 911. Lincoln was arrested and has been relieved of duty with pay until the investigation is completed.
