Police have charged a Woodbridge resident Ian Reid, 45, with impersonating a law enforcement officer and reckless handling of a firearm after a Woodbridge woman reported that her driveway light had been shot out with a handgun, Prince William County Police spokesperson Jonathan Perok said.
Police initially responded to the 4800 block of Tobacco Way in Woodbridge on Oct. 6 at 9:31 p.m. for the report of a person with a gun.
"The caller reported to police that her neighbor, identified as the accused, shot out one of her driveway lights with a handgun. When confronted by the neighbor, the accused stated that he was a special agent with a federal agency," Perok said. "Officers arrived and located the accused who was determined to not be a special agent and had no affiliation with any law enforcement agency. Following the investigation, the accused was subsequently arrested."
No one was injured. Reid was charged with reckless handling of a firearm, impersonating of a law enforcement officer, and carrying a concealed weapon. His court date is Oct. 29. He is being held without bond.
