Police say an apparently drunk man arrested after allegedly brandishing a gun on a Burbank street is a federal agent.
According to a police statement, officers responded early Wednesday after someone reported being approached by a very drunk man who pulled out a handgun. The armed man directed the victim to follow him.
The victim managed to run off and the armed suspect was found by police less than a mile away.
Police say Andrew Leconte was arrested on suspicion of kidnapping and brandishing a firearm.
Investigators later learned that Leconte is an agent with the United States Marshals Service.
The 27-year old was released on bond. The Marshals Service refused comment.
