Man who threatened another driver with a revolver has been arrested by the National Police in Valencia

As reported this Saturday, March 5, National Police officers have arrested a 24-year-old man in the province of Valencia. He was detained as the alleged perpetrator of a crime of threats, another against road safety, and another of usurpation of functions.

Their investigations began after a complaint was received from a man, who was the victim of threats made against him when he was driving on the V-30.  A vehicle displaying a blue flashing light, similar to those used by the Security Forces, pulled his car over, then allegedly threatened him with a revolver.

During the investigations, the police officers located a profile on social networks, in which the user had frequently posted such videos, with his vehicle displaying a blue flashing light.

They eventually located the owner of the vehicle, and he was arrested as the alleged perpetrator of the crimes of usurpation of functions, threats, and against traffic safety. A replica revolver, matching a description given by the complainant, was also recovered.

The detainee, without a police record, has been released after making a statement, and warned of his obligation to appear before the judicial authority when instructed to do so, as reported by lasprovincias.es.
