FAIRFAX COUNTY, VA. — On Tuesday, officers responded to the Social Security Administration Office for a report of a woman assaulting a security guard.
The security guard noticed 56-year-old Laurie Weaver, of New York, in the office yelling at employees. When he approached, she hit him in the head with her fanny pack. The security officer immediately escorted Weaver from the building. Once outside, she displayed a knife and threatened the security guard who immediately closed the door.
An officer found Weaver nearby and arrested her without incident. When she was arrested, officers checked her fanny pack and located a small pigeon inside. The pigeon was taken to our animal shelter and was found to be unharmed.
Weaver was charged with attempted unlawful wounding for attacking the guard with the knife. No one was injured during the encounter.
Animal Protection Police are being consulted regarding other possible charges. The pigeon will be returned to the wild after the investigation is complete.
