A man allegedly assaulted a police officer in Arlington County’s government offices after a dispute over his employment, police said.

Officers from the Arlington County Police Department responded to 2100 Clarendon Blvd on Wednesday, November 15 at around 2:35 p.m.

Department spokesman Ashley Savage said they responded to the County Manager’s office after the suspect, Vincent Moody, 52, became upset about his employment status and refused to leave. Someone by that name on LinkedIn is listed as having worked in “facilities” for Arlington County.

When police arrived he refused to comply, and as he was handcuffed he hit an officer, according to Savage.
