The July 7 incident at the Guam Tumon BBQ party, better known now as the "gun grabbing" incident, has resulted in four misdemeanor charges against Lt. Governor Ray Tenorio, charging him with reckless conduct, reckless conduct with a firearm, obstructing government functions and official misconduct.

No felony charges were handed down.

Tenorio faces a court appearance October 3, before Judge Benjamin Sison in Superior Court.

According to court documents, Tenorio attempted to remove police sergeant Carl Cruz's loaded service revolver from its holster six times. Tenorio later presented this as an educational effort about the need for officers to properly secure their weapons.
