A Philadelphia firefighter allegedly pulled a gun on a woman following a car crash last Saturday. He is currently in custody.
Sources say that 40 year-old Michael Brown rear-ended a female driver at the intersection of Aramingo and James Street in Philadelphia. He was driving on the Bridgesburg area of the area around 4 am Saturday.
The woman wanted to exchange car insurance information and call the authorities but Brown reportedly refused. This led to an argument between the two. Brown then allegedly walked back to his car grabbed a gun and pointed it at the woman’s face.
Brown then told the woman he was a Philadelphia Police officer. At this stage the woman demanded to see a badge but Brown refused before fleeing the scene. He was stopped when real police officers showed up at the scene and took him into custody.
Investigators say they found a BB gun, brass knuckles, Xanax, Oxycodone and Methamphetamine inside the suspect’s car.
Brown currently faces charges of aggravated assault, driving without a license, terroristic threats, impersonating a police officer and simple assault.
A spokesperson for the Philadelphia Firefighter’s union has stated that they have been made aware of the disturbing allegations, and are cooperating with police and other authorities.
Brown is a Philadelphia firefighter for nearly 10 years. Sources say Brown was already on leave prior to the incident. He also faces inquiry at work after being accused of stealing money from a patient he was transporting to the hospital two weeks ago.
