TYLER (KYTX) -- Tyler Junior College has confirmed the resignation of an instructor in the TJC Law Enforcement Academy.

Sergeant Reginald Williams reportedly pointed a gun inappropriately in the direction of students during a classroom demonstration on Monday.

After an investigation by campus police, they found the guidelines for instruction had been violated, and according to spokesman Fred Peters, Sergeant Williams resigned from the force Friday.

Here is the official statement on the incident:

"Following an internal review of an incident that occurred during a weapons demonstration at the TJC Law Enforcement Academy on Monday, Campus Police Sgt. Reginald "BJ" Williams has tendered his resignation.

As a result of the review, TJC Campus Police determined that a necessary safety precaution did not take place as required. The institution considers safety to be paramount in all types of training and follows up with all concerns presented. In this particular case, the trainer failed to meet the established expectations."
