A white St. Louis lawyer and U.S. Senate candidate could have his law license suspended after a June cident in which he and his wife threatened Black Lives Matter protesters with guns.

Missouri’s Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel filed the case to suspend with the Missouri Supreme Court on Thursday, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. The development comes after Missouri Gov. Mike Parson pardoned Mark McCloskey and his wife, Patricia McCloskey, of fourth-degree assault.

A similar motion was filed against Patricia McCloskey, who also is a lawyer.

Such a suspension could last up to six months.
