Cop Pulls Gun on Colleague for Threatening Top Gun: Maverick Spoiler

The incident occurred in May of 2022, when Constable Dominic Gaynor and his colleague, Constable Morgan Royston, were working together at a police station. Royston had recently seen Top Gun: Maverick, and he was eager to share his thoughts with Gaynor. However, Gaynor had not yet seen the movie, and he begged Royston not to tell him any spoilers.

“I’ll spoil it for you,” Royston threatened.

Gaynor initially laughed off the threat, but Royston persisted. He began to describe the plot of the movie in detail, and Gaynor became increasingly agitated.

“Don’t spoil the movie,” Gaynor warned. “I’m serious.”

But Royston ignored Gaynor’s warnings. He continued to describe the movie, scene by scene, until Gaynor finally had enough. He reached for his gun and pointed it at Royston.

“I’ll shoot you,” Gaynor threatened.

Royston was terrified. He quickly backed away from Gaynor and raised his hands in surrender. Gaynor then lowered his gun and apologized.

The incident was reported to the police department, and Gaynor was immediately suspended from duty. He was later charged with carrying a firearm with disregard for the safety of another person.

In court, Gaynor pleaded guilty to the charge. He was sentenced to a community correction order for two years, 100 hours of community service, and a recorded conviction.

The case has sparked a debate about the dangers of workplace violence and the importance of professional conduct. Some people have criticized Gaynor for his overreaction, while others have expressed sympathy for him, arguing that he was simply trying to protect himself from spoilers.

So, why do we hate spoilers so much? Psychologists believe that there are a few reasons for this.

First, spoilers can ruin the surprise of a movie or TV show. When we know what’s going to happen next, we lose some of the excitement and suspense.

Second, spoilers can make us feel like we’re missing out on something. If our friends have already seen a movie or TV show and they’re talking about it, we may feel left out of the conversation.

Finally, spoilers can violate our sense of trust. When someone tells us a spoiler, they’re essentially breaking a promise not to ruin the experience for us.

Of course not. Violence is never the answer, no matter how angry or frustrated you are. If someone spoils a movie for you, the best thing to do is to simply walk away. You can always watch the movie again and experience it for the first time all over again.

The case of the cop who pulled a gun on his colleague for threatening to spoil Top Gun: Maverick is a reminder that we all need to be mindful of our words and actions. Even a seemingly harmless joke can have serious consequences.
