INITIAL REPORT:

A 21-year-old Beavercreek man said to be impersonating a police officer while in possession of a loaded handgun and intoxicated is facing charges following an incident at Caddy's Tap House Friday morning, according to a Beavercreek police report.

Christopher Boehmer was a customer at the bar, 2760 Towne Drive, around 1:30 a.m., and according to the report had been "showing people a police badge and a firearm." 

Four bouncers approached Boehmer and questioned him about the badge and gun and the 21-year-old tried to run, the report said. 

While running, a bouncer told police Boehmer appeared to be reaching for his waistband, so the bouncers tackled the suspect and held him to the ground, according to the report.

He's due in court June 16 and weapons charges are pending testing of the weapon, according to the report.
