CINCINNATI -- A judge ordered last month that all weapons be removed from a Cincinnati police officer's possession after he was cited for drinking alcohol during firearms training. 

David Jenkins, 45, was on probation on Dec. 20 when he blew a .053 BAC at the training, according to Hamilton County court records.

On Dec. 22, Judge Heather Russell made the order to remove all weapons from Jenkins' possession.

Jenkins is on probation as part of his sentence for disorderly conduct. He pleaded guilty to the charge in July after he carried a rifle and acted as a police officer while off duty and drunk in March, according to court records. A second charge of disorderly conduct was dismissed.

Police Chief Eliot Isaac previously wrote that Jenkins' police powers were suspended and he had been reassigned to desk duty after the incident.
