KINGMAN, AZ (CBS5) -
Mohave County sheriff's deputies arrested a Kingman man accused of impersonating a federal U.S. marshal and shooting at a moving vehicle.
Vincent Nicholas Demarco, 47, was arrested by deputies about 6:15 p.m. Monday and booked into the Mohave County Jail on four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of disorderly conduct with a weapon, two counts of endangerment and impersonating a peace officer, all felonies.
Deputies said Demarco told them his puppy had been stolen on Sunday, and he suspected someone at a residence in the 1700 block of Devlin Avenue, according to an MCSO news release.
When he saw four women outside a residence in that area with a puppy he approached them, according to the release.
One of the women told Demarco the puppy was hers and the women began to walk away, according to the release.
Demarco yelled, "Halt," identified himself as a federal marshal, and pulled a gun from his waistband as the women got into a vehicle and started to drive away, according to the release.
Demarco, while sitting on his motorcycle, fired twice at the vehicle, according to the release.
A woman and her 2-year-old son were in the front yard of the residence at the time of the shooting, according to the release.
No one was injured.
Deputies found Demarco sitting on his motorcycle before he started to drive away and yelled he was a U.S. marshal.
He was stopped and deputies found two guns in his waistband, according to the release.
