MT. JULIET - An Old Hickory women posed as an off-duty police officer and pulled a gun on a juvenile male Saturday night at Charlie Daniels Park in Mt. Juliet.

Holly Hood, 35, was arrested over the weekend for impersonating an officer at the park. According to a police report, the juvenile told police he was driving his car through the parking lot at Charlie Daniels Park around 9:30 p.m.  when Hood yelled for him to stop his car. Hood then told the driver she was an off-duty police officer and ordered him to get out of the car and put his hands on top of the vehicle.

Many witnesses confirmed that Hood went up to the victim's car and pulled a handgun from her waistband and said she was a police officer. A witness called the MJPD and officers quickly responded.

They searched Hood's car and found the earlier described .357 Magnum handgun and also ammunition. Hood's ex-husband, Marvin Hood, 40, of Nashville, was in the car and had illegal pills and a small amount of crack cocaine on his person, according to a police report.

The report states that neither had a valid handgun carry permit. Both Holly and Marvin Hood were arrested and booked into the Wilson County jail. Holly Hood was charged with aggravated assault, unlawful possession of a weapon and criminal impersonation.

Marvin Hood was charged with simple possession of a controlled substance – Schedule II, III and VI.

MJPD officials want to remind people that police officers have both a badge and photo identification on them. If anyone believes that someone is impersonating a police officer, they should call 911 immediately.
