The white Dallas cop who fatally shot a black man inside his home last week — after mistaking his apartment for her own — has been arrested and charged with manslaughter, according to officials.

上周,达拉斯一名白人女警官误入一名黑人男子的公寓,误以为自己家中进入了陌生男子,遂开枪将其打死。警方随后逮捕了她,指控她犯有过失杀人罪。

Amber Guyger, 30, was booked on Sunday night in the Kaufman County Jail.

周日晚上,30岁的女警官安布尔.盖格被关押在考夫曼县监狱。

Her bond was set at $300,000. She was taken into custody by the Texas Rangers.

她被得克萨斯骑警拘留,保释金为30万美元。

The sheriff’s office told CBS DFW that Guyger is expected to make her bond and be released.

警长办公室告诉哥伦比亚广播公司,盖格缴纳保释金后将被释放。

She is accused of killing 26-year-old Botham Jean inside his South Side Flats apartment on Thursday night after accidentally walking inside — thinking it was her own residence. Guyger had just finished her shift and was still in uniform.

警方指控她于周四晚上在南区公寓杀害了26岁的博瑟姆.吉恩。当时盖格刚刚下班,身穿制服。

The shooting sparked major outrage on social media and widespread calls for Guyger’s arrest.

这起枪击事件在社交媒体上引发了极大的愤怒,人们呼吁逮捕盖格。

At first, she was given a slap on the wrist and asked to take a leave of absence. But authorities later obtained new evidence in the case, which led the Dallas District Attorney’s Office to file charges, according to S. Lee Merritt, the lawyer for Botham’s family.

这名女警官误入吉恩公寓后,吉恩打了她一巴掌,并要求她立即离开。但据博瑟姆家人的律师李.梅里特说,后来达拉斯地方检察官办公室获得了此案的新证据,并对女警官提出了指控。

Dallas police Chief U. Renee Hall told reporters on Saturday that Guyger’s arrest warrant had not yet been signed yet because the Texas Rangers were still probing the new information.

周六,达拉斯警察局长乌里尼.霍尔对记者说,对盖格的逮捕令还没有签署,因为德州骑警仍在调查新的证据。

The decision was made, however, after “subsequent coordination” with the DA’s office, officials said.

不过,警方在与地方检察官办公室进行商议后,发出了逮捕令。

Merritt had previously claimed that Guyger, a four-year veteran, wasn’t being eyed for manslaughter charges because of her status as a cop.

梅里特此前曾声称,盖格是拥有4年军龄的退伍老兵,不能因为她是一名警察而免于过失杀人罪。

He called on the DA’s office to treat her “like every other citizen, and where there is evidence that they’ve committed a crime, that there’s a warrant to be issued and an arrest to be made.”

他呼吁地方检察官办公室“像对待其他所有公民一样公平审判,只要有证据表明警察犯了罪,就要发出逮捕令并对其进行逮捕”。
