Dangerous Take-out

The commander of an Oregon narcotics unit has been placed on administrative leave because he shot at a man who tossed a box of Chinese food through the window of his unmarked police car.

Medford police say Lieutenant Jim Anderson fired one shot from his police handgun at 24-year-old Jorge Armando Cisneros, after Cisneros threw a white take-out box through Anderson´s open passenger window.

Investigators say Anderson feared for his personal safety.

The shot fired by Anderson missed the man, and slammed into the side of a house.
