The president of Omaha State Bank remains on leave after he brought his new gun to work last month to show it to a friend.

Michael Dahir's actions violated a bank policy prohibiting employees from bringing guns into the bank.

Bank vice president Karen Cenovic filed a police report later saying she felt threatened. But prosecutors haven't decided yet whether to file charges.

The incident on Nov. 20 happened after the bank closed. Dahir had just picked up a new 9mm handgun that he'd purchased, and he brought it inside the bank to show it off.

Dahir says he's sorry about the incident and realizes it was a mistake to take the gun into the bank. Dahir says he never meant to threaten anyone.
