An Old Hickory woman was arrested in Mt. Juliet Saturday after she allegedly pulled a gun on a man and posed as an off-duty police officer at Charlie Daniels Park.
Around 9:30 p.m., on Saturday, July 21, MJPD received a call in reference to a female pointing a gun at a juvenile male in the parking lot of the city park. A witness, who called the police, told dispatchers that the female suspect said she was an off-duty police officer.
Officers arrived at the scene and the suspect was identified as Holly Hood, 35, of Old Hickory. Investigation revealed that Hood was not an off-duty police officer.According to the male juvenile victim, he was driving his car through the parking lot when Hood reportedly yelled for him to stop. After stopping his vehicle, the victim said Hood told him she was an off-duty police officer. Hood reportedly ordered the male to step out of the vehicle and place his hands on top of the car.
The victim and witnesses told police that Hood approached the vehicle and allegedly pulled a handgun, pointing it at the victim.
Sgt. Tyler Chandler, MJPD community policing director and public information officer, said the suspect was reportedly trying to scare the juvenile, whom she believed had insulted her earlier at the park.
“We think she stopped this person because he called her a (expletive) earlier at the park and she was using the threat of being a police officer to scare him,” Chandler said.
When officers arrived at the park, Hood was found sitting in a white Dodge Neon along with a male, who was identified as Marvin Hood, 40, of Nashville. Officers reportedly found a .357 Magnum handgun and ammunition during a search of Hood’s vehicle. Marvin Hood also allegedly had illegal pills and a small amount of crack cocaine on his person.
Police indicated neither individual had a permit to carry a handgun.
Holly Hood is charged with Aggravated Assault, Unlawful Possession of a Weapon and Criminal Impersonation. Marvin Hood was also arrested and is charged with Simple Possession of a Controlled Substance Schedule II, III and VI. Both Marvin and Holly Hood remain in custody at the Wilson County Jail with a $7,500 and $17,500 bond, respectively.
