A police officer who disappeared for several hours on Tuesday in a patrol car without explaining his absence to his superiors was forced to hand over his service weapon after returning to Attica’s police headquarters later the same day.

When officers approached their colleague, he reportedly verbally abused and threatened them but was eventually convinced to hand himself in and turn over his gun.

It is thought that the officer might have psychological problems.
