Karnig Ohannessian, a deputy assistant secretary of the Navy, pulled the gun on partygoers in Fairfax, Virginia, last month, claiming the young men were drunk and causing a ruckus in front of his house.
“I can shoot the f*** out of you guys right now,” he’s heard saying in the video.
Ohannessian is a high-ranking official at the Pentagon, and has received two prestigious civilian service awards.
“You're pointing a gun at my friend,” one person is heard saying in a video.
“This is a criminal offense, so please stop it,” says another.
Ohannessian then tells the men to get in their car.
A woman — believed to be the man's wife — tried to calm him down.
“Let them leave,” she begs.

But the young men don't back down and appear to taunt him.
“Be thankful you have a gun, man. It shows what kind of a [expletive] you are,” said one of the men.
The mother of the young man wearing a hat in the video called local police. “It's horrifying to see someone pointing a gun at your child,” Anne Sheerin, the mother, told Inside Edition.
Now Ohannessian's superiors at the Navy are looking into the incident, saying in a statement, “Mr. Ohannessian's supervisor is taking the appropriate action to include working to understand the full details of what occurred.”
Ohannessian was briefly detained, but not charged.
