Jerome Felipe, 53, of Flint, Michigan, United States is a former member of the U.S. Marine Corps. He joined the New York City Police Department in July 2003 then retired from his job as a police officer in November 2018.
Just before 5:00 a.m. on June 3, 2022, a U.S. Capitol Police patrol officer started talking to Felipe. He had parked his 2017 Dodge Challenger near Peace Circle on the west side of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., USA.
Felipe falsely claimed that he was a criminal investigator with the International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol). The words “Department of the INTERPOL” were printed on the fake badge he presented the USCP officers.
With Felipe’s permission, the USCP officers search the 2017 Dodge Challenger. They found no real guns in the vehicle but they found a BB gun, two ballistic vests, several high capacity magazines and other ammunition.
The Flint resident was charged with unlawful possession of high capacity magazines nd unregistered ammo. Investigators are still working to determine why he was parked near the U.S. Capitol.
Flint was incorporated in 1855. It is the largest city and seat of Genesee County, Michigan.
On November 11, 2019, Sheldon Neeley, 53, assumed office as the 94th mayor of Flint. Born in the city, Mike “Platinum” Perry, 30, competed in the Ultimate Fighting Championship from 2016 to 2021 and made his Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship debut on February 19, 2022.
