SEVIERVILLE (AP) — A veteran deputy with the Sevier County Sheriff's Office is back on the job — with a firearms refresher course completed — after he accidentally fired a shot inside a convenience store.

Cpl. Chris Huskey was demonstrating a Glock pistol to Deputy Adam Bohanan at Dunn's Market on Nov. 23 when the weapon discharged, firing a bullet through a computer monitor and the wall of a walk-in freezer, where it lodged in a pack of frozen bologna. No one else was in the store at the time and neither officer was hurt, according to The Mountain Press (http://bit.ly/uPXUrW).

Huskey was suspended for 18 hours and had to take a weapons safety course. He and Bohanan split the cost of replacing the video monitor.
