An Everett man is facing charges after he allegedly pulled a gun on a Cambridge parking control officer who had given him a ticket.
Fritzner Bellevue, 27, of Everett was illegally parked on Magazine Street when the officer approached his vehicle, Cambridge police spokesman Dan Riviello said. Bellevue was inside the vehicle and the officer told him to move his vehicle or he would be issued a ticket. An argument ensued, and the officer continued his patrol.
The officer returned shortly after the encounter and found Bellevue’s vehicle unattended and still illegally parked, and issued him a ticket.
As the officer continued his patrol, he allegedly saw Bellevue’s vehicle drive by with the side window down. Bellevue revealed a handgun, Riviello said.
“The operator allegedly held up a handgun and waved it at him and threatened him,” he said.
Cambridge police issued a lookout for the suspect, and around 9 p.m. Bellevue was arrested in Everett on a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon.
