Vallejo police confirmed they arrested a man last week who allegedly pointed a gun at a woman during an argument in October. 

On October 22, in the 400 block of Lincoln Road East, police responded to a call about a man who allegedly pulled out a gun. 

A woman told officers she argued with a man who brandished a firearm from his fanny pack, pointed it at her, and said ā€œIā€™m a bad boy! I am a bad guy!ā€

The suspect then fled the scene in a pickup truck. 

The victim gave the police a detailed description of the suspect and his vehicle. 

On December 3, police spotted the man and his car near Tennessee Street. 

Police said when they tried detaining the man, he resisted and tried to overpower the officers before fleeing on foot. 

The suspect was pursued and arrested. 

While searching his fanny pack, police allegedly found a loaded firearm not registered to him and around 4.6 grams of methamphetamine.

It was later determined that the man had an outstanding arrest warrant from Napa County and a prior felony conviction for assault with a deadly weapon.

The suspect was transported to a local hospital for medical clearance before being booked into Solano County jail.
