Numerous charges after Alexandria man backs car into police cruiser in Old Town

An 18-year-old Alexandria man was arrested on gun and drug charges after backing his car against a police cruiser and allegedly attempting to drive away.

The incident occurred in the unit block of Oronoco Street near the Alexandria waterfront on Wednesday, Feb. 16.

Police found the suspect’s car parked in a no parking zone. While the investigating officer was advising dispatch of the location and description of the vehicle, the driver “reversed his vehicle,  hit my unoccupied cruiser, and attempted to leave the area in an attempt to avoid police interaction,” police said in a search warrant affidavit.

Police also found that the driver is unlicensed, and had 1.1 ounces of marijuana with him, a digital scale and a black and gray loaded Glock 22 handgun.

The driver was charged with carrying a concealed weapon, possessing Schedule I/II drugs while possessing a firearm, driving without a license and failure to pay full attention while operating a vehicle. He was released on $3,000 bond on Feb. 17 and goes to court on March 30.
