Alexandria Police arrested a 25-year-old Black man in May on multiple charges, including driving under the influence, assault on police, obstruction of justice with force, carrying a concealed weapon and possession of a weapon by a convicted felon.
Police also found a silver-colored Taurus Hy-lite revolver fully loaded in the center console, in addition to several open bottles of beer and six round of ammunition hidden in a wine bottle in the front passenger door, according to the affidavit.
The incident occurred at around 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 14. Alexandria police were dispatched to a call for service at the Speedway gas station at 620 S. Patrick Street and found the suspect, Michael Jerome Thompson, Jr., allegedly unable to pump gas into his white Lincoln Navigator, according to a search warrant affidavit.
“He physically resisted arrest on the scene by kicking officers. Multiple officers,” Alexandria Police spokesman Lt. Courtney Ballantine told ALXnow. “The vehicle was impounded for the DUI.”
There were four police officers at the scene and none were injured, Ballantine said.
