A 42-year-old Alexandria man was arrested last month for allegedly brandishing a firearm against a neighbor living in the same West End apartment building.

Antwain Young, 42, was arrested Dec. 21, six days after the alleged incident. He was charged with brandishing a firearm, possession of a firearm by a nonviolent felon and possession of 11 to 49 marijuana plants. The marijuana charge was dismissed, and Young goes to court for the other offenses on Feb. 16.

The male victim told police that he first got into a shouting match with Young in the parking lot of their apartment building on Dec. 13, according to a recently released search warrant affidavit.

Two days later, the victim reported that he got into another argument with Young in the building’s parking garage. When the victim returned to the garage later in the day, Young allegedly approached him, pulled a handgun from his hooded sweatshirt and pointed it at him, according to the search warrant affidavit.

The victim told police that he was chased to the building’s leasing office. He was not injured.

Young faces up to a year in prison and/or a $2,500 fine for the brandishing (a Class 1 misdemeanor) and a year and/$2,500 fine for the possession charge.
