Former school board, city council candidate charged with impersonating an FBI agent

Police arrested one-time school board and city council candidate Scott Gordon earlier this month for allegedly impersonating an FBI agent to avoid a parking ticket in Old Town.

On September 19, Gordon returned to his car — located on the 100 block of N. Pitt St. — to find a parking enforcement employee ticketing his vehicle, said police spokeswoman Ashley Hildebrandt. Gordon, who holds an open-carry permit, then reportedly removed his firearm from his holster while insinuating he was a law enforcement officer.

“He had his weapon on him, and somehow it made its way out of its holster,” Hildebrandt said. “He didn’t point it at anyone; he was just sort of showing it and trying to get out of the ticket. And then he hinted at the fact that he was an FBI agent and drove off.”

Unfortunately for Gordon, the parking enforcement officer had his license-plate number, which was turned over to police, who promptly arrested him. Gordon faces charges of impersonating a law enforcement officer, brandishing a firearm and driving on a suspended license.

After abandoning a bid for city council last year, Gordon sought a seat on the school board. But he dropped out of the race following revelations that he lied about holding a doctorate in organizational psychology.

  1. This isnt actually true. Del Ray Patch is already being investigated for writing the same lies. Internal Affairs is investigating Ashley H. at APD. Don’t believe everything you read.

    • Editor’s Note: City Hall has confirmed that the police department’s spokeswoman is not under any sort of investigation – internal or otherwise.

  2. Investigated? Like by the “FBI”?

  4. Mr. Gordon is a known liar. I hope he has his gun rights taken away.

    I’m looking forward to hearing this likely defense: “It wasn’t me, it was the one-armed man.”

    • Mr. Gordon is not a known liar. Ashley Hildebrandt is being investigated by Internal Affairs. Check your facts Perkins. Also of note, even the accusations (though) false NEVER mention open carry, never mention leaving the scene, and NEVER mention trying to get out of a ticket.

      Does anyone seem to care there is witness testimony is his DEFENSE. That there is VIDEO from CVS and SunTrust Bank in his DEFENSE.

      Don’t just to conclusions.

      • Those are the CHARGES Joe. If you read the accounts as provided by Alex Times and Del Ray Patch, you’ll notice how different they are. Read the affadavits and you’ll see just how much Alex Times and Del Ray Patch have been lying. Just do the research, it’s all right there.

        Ashley Hildebrandt of APD PIO has been issued a Gag Order by the Chief of Police. He’s asked her to stop talking……gee…..wonder why?

    • Hi Scott! Why not use your real name?

  5. Is this the same guy that lied about having a doctorate in psychology? Guess that’s why people are saying he’s a liar.

  6. A search of Alexandria, Arlington, and Fairfax County general district court documents turn up interesting results.

    • You are all still neglecting to acknowledge the facts.

      Why do you think Patch and Alex Time are running completely different stories? Why was Ashley Hildebrandt issues a gag order by the Chief of Police? Why was NO evidence presented, AT ALL, prior to his arrest?


      • Incidentally Scott—I mean “Sean Williamson”, a gag order is issued by a court. The chief of police may or may not have asked the spokeswoman to refrain from making further comments to avoid creating more of a circus than it already is. Not the same thing as a gag order.

        Also, strangely, evidence isn’t presented PRIOR to arrest. The officer just swears in an affidavit that there is *probable* *cause* to bring charges. Evidence is presented later. You know, at a trial. Well, perhaps you don’t know yet. But trust me, you will.

        Bless your heart. Get help. Really.

  7. Is Mr. Williamson being paid to represent Mr. Gordon?

  8. There is no such thing as an “open carry permit” in Virginia. Open carry is legal and lawful in Virginia without any permitting or licensure. You may be referring to a Virginia Concealed Handgun License.

  9. I am not representing Mr. Gordon. Alex, every piece of evidence at the scene proves Mr. Gordon’s innocence. Including the testimony of City Employees who witnessed the event.

    Why, in light of actual proof, do you still deny it?

    If you’re being shown a picture of a car and yet you maintain it’s a bike….Alex….I’m afraid you’re the one who needs help.

  10. And of course, to all of blind haters, should anyone come to the defense of an innocent man, it must be the defendant. Idiots.

  11. Based on all the self referential comments, fake articles, editorials and manufactured quotes all written by the same person, clearly Scott Gordon is innocent. Feel free to quote me on that Scott, err I mean Sean.

  12. Ok then, is Mr. Williamson actually Mr. Gordon? That would help explain the incoherent posts and needless insults.

  13. Brilliant come back Scott, er, I mean Sean
