Another San Francisco Sheriff's Deputy Facing Criminal Charges
San Francisco Police Officer Gordon Shyy tells us that on Oct. 3 at about 5 p.m., officers were called to the 3500 block of San Bruno Avenue on reports of a person with a gun. Shyy says Green, along with two other people, showed up to an apartment and was banging on the door.
A woman and her husband answered the door and the group started arguing about some work he had done for Green's sister.

Shyy says that Green, 36, tried to force her way into the house and at some point brandished her firearm.
Green was arrested that evening and charged with exhibiting a firearm, criminal threats, possessing a deadly weapon, and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription. She was released on $60,000 bail the following morning, and pleaded not guilty, said Alex Bastian, spokesman for the District Attorney's Office.
Green's attorney, Harry Stern, told the Chronicle that she did nothing wrong; in fact she had identified herself as a sheriff's deputy when the alleged victims became aggressive. "Deputy Green was trying to help out her sister, who had a disagreement with the other party," he told the paper. "The other side tried to sic a vicious dog and hit her with a golf club. She didn't pull any weapons, use any weapons or anything like that."
Green, who is back at work assigned to administrative duties, is scheduled to appear in court again next month.
Last week, 36-year-old Phil Tong, also a sheriff's deputy, was arrested on suspicion of bank robbery. San Francisco police say Tong walked into a Bank of America in the Richmond District, handed the teller a demand note claiming to have a gun, and walked out with a stack of cash.
Police say they identified his fingerprints on the demand note and also spotted him on the bank's surveillance camera.
