An off-duty Dallas firefighter has been accused of discharging a handgun at a fire station.

Dallas Fire-Rescue officials say 37-year-old Jesus Ventura of Irving has been put on paid administrative leave during the investigation of the March 8 incident. Nobody was hurt.

Dallas police say Ventura was arrested late Thursday at his home on a deadly conduct warrant. Jail records Friday did not list information on whether Ventura remained in custody. Police did not immediately provide further details on the arrest.

A police report says Ventura had waived the pistol and pointed the handgun at other firefighters. Witnesses disarmed Ventura.
