About 1 a.m., police responded to a report about an armed man at a home at 870 Crossfield Cove, the Memphis Police Department said in a statement. Police found off-duty officer James Valentine, 33, who they said got inside the home — which belonged to Valentine's ex-girlfriend — with a spare key that he never returned.

Police said Valentine was armed with a handgun and demanded a man who was in the home to leave. Officers later found the gun a bedroom,the department said. No injuries were reported.

Valentine was charged with aggravated burglary, aggravated assault and aggravated domestic violence assault.
