A Palm Bay FL man who said he was a CIA agent when he allegedly threatened another man with a handgun — apparently over a parking issue – is facing a felony charge.
Police reports say Ryan C. Duff pulled a small handgun with red laser from his waistband and pointed it a man, saying, “I don’t want you parking in front of my apartment.”
Duff, 35, lives in the 200 block of Interchange Drive, where the incident occurred late Friday.
The man allegedly threatened the victim and the victim’s family as they were walking to their car. The police report says Duff told them he “killed people like you everyday” and “watch where you park bro.”
Officers surrounded Duff’s apartment and the suspect came out when police knocked on his door. He had a small black handgun at the time and upon police instruction dropped the weapon and got on the ground, the report says.
“While Ryan was in custody, he stated that the ‘worked for the CIA and is also a Navy Seal member’,” his arrest report reads. “Ryan appeared to be under the influence of some substance, he was being belligerent and not being cooperative.”
Duff was arrested on a charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without the intent to kill. He was taken to jail and posted bond and has been released, according to jail records.
Yah WHATEVER . . . this guy has an interesting fantasy life. I can't believe they let him out on bail . . .
