A man is accused of impersonating an officer and pulling a gun on a security guard outside a Nashville business.
A security guard spotted Eric Stanberry urinating in the parking lot of the Crazy Horse strip club Saturday morning, according to the affidavit.
When he asked him to leave, the guard said Stanberry pulled out a 9-millimeter gun and pointed it at him.
Police arrived and ordered Stanberry to the ground. Officers said he refused and pulled out his gun again, pointing it at the ground.
Police said Stanberry told them he was a sovereign police officer and was a higher authority. They eventually used a Taser on Stanberry and took him into custody.
Officers said the gun had a bullet in the chamber and a loaded magazine. Stanberry did not have a valid carry permit.
He's charged with aggravated assault and possession of a handgun under the influence.
