January 4, 2010
LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) – A Longmont man faces attempted murder charges after police say he played a game of Russian roulette with his ex-girlfriend.
Thirty-nine-year-old Garrett Odel Brierly is being held in the Boulder County Jail on a $50,000 bond after police say he pointed a gun at his former girlfriend’s face on Oct. 27.
The woman called police, and when officers arrived Brierly said he was playing Russian roulette with her. Brierly said he would point the gun at her forehead, pull the trigger, then point the gun at his own head and pull the trigger.
Neither was hurt. Brierly is scheduled to enter a plea Friday in the case. He also faces charges of menacing and reckless endangerment.
