WALDORF, Md. – On January 8 at 8 p.m., officers responded to the 1700 block of Brightwell Court in Waldorf for the report of a domestic-related assault in progress in which the suspect was armed with a handgun.
When officers arrived, they located the suspect outside of the residence; he had a handgun in his waistband.
Officers were able to deescalate the situation and safely secure the loaded weapon and detain the suspect.
A computer check revealed the suspect was prohibited from possessing a firearm due to previous felony convictions.
A preliminary investigation showed the suspect, James Reeder, 45, of Waldorf, was involved in an argument with a woman.
During the argument, Reeder produced a firearm, pointed it at the woman and a nine-year-old child who was in the residence, and made threats. Reeder was arrested and charged with two counts of first-degree assault, two counts of second-degree assault, illegal possession of a firearm and other related charges.
On January 9, a judge ordered Reeder to be held at the Charles County Detention Center without bond.
Officer T. Brown is investigating.
previous felony convictions. As in plural? The DA needs to be investigated.
“A computer check revealed the suspect was prohibited from possessing a firearm due to previous felony convictions.”
Someone tell the anti-gun libs that we’ve yet to have “one of ours” doing this. It’s always theirs…
This might sound ridiculous, but I swear I just met this dude somewhere. He seemed cool as could be too. Just goes to show you. You never know what other people are going through.
