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 Hoods 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.
