A Woodbridge man was jailed over the weekend after police said he pulled a gun on a tow truck operator near Arlington's Long Branch Creek community.
The driver told investigators that at about 10:43 p.m. Friday he tried to tow a vehicle for a parking permit violation in the 2900 block of South Glebe Road, according to information police released this week.
In the process of towing the vehicle, 36-year-old William Eugene Jones Jr., the car's owner, refused to pay a $25 drop fee and pulled a pistol on the driver, forcing him to release the vehicle, police spokesman Dustin Sternbeck told Patch.
Jones drove off but police found him a short time later.
Jones was arrested and charged with robbery, use of a firearm in committing a felony, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, and brandishing and possession of a concealed weapon, according to police.
He was held without bond.
No one was injured.
This isn't the first time recently that a parking dispute turned violent in Arlington.
In December, a woman and two acquaintances were jailed following an incident where a car was being towed and an officer was assaulted.
