An Alexandria man was arrested Sept. 19 in Old Town after he pretended to be an FBI agent and showed a handgun in an attempt to get out of a parking ticket.
The man approached an Alexandria parking enforcement officer who was issuing his vehicle a citation around 11:30 a.m. in the 100 block of N. Pitt Street.
The man implied he was an FBI agent. When that didn’t impress the parking enforcement officer, the man took out a handgun.
“He’s an open-carry guy, had his gun and began protesting the ticket,” Alexandria police spokesperson Ashley Hildebrandt said.
Hildebrandt said the man didn’t point his handgun at the officer, but took it out of its holster.
The man was arrested and cited with brandishing a handgun, impersonating a law enforcement officer and driving on a suspended license.
