WINCHESTER -- A Stephens City physician is facing charges of brandishing a firearm stemming from an incident in July, court documents show.
Charles Aldwin Middlehof, 45, of 426 Albin Drive, Stephens City, was arrested July 5 after police were called to the home of Joyce A. Reynolds-Payne, at 200 Sherando Circle.
According to a criminal complaint filed in the court, a man visiting Reynolds-Payne called police after Middlehof allegedly showed up at the home with a weapon.
The man told deputies that "Mr. Middlehof walked up to the residence and pulled up his shirt to reveal what [the man] described as a black, 9 mm pistol, and patted his hand on the firearm, which [he] perceived as an act of intimidation," the complaint states.
Authorities who responded to the home confiscated the 9 mm Beretta from Middlehof, who told a deputy that he did not have a concealed weapons permit.
No shots were fired and no one was injured.
Middlehof operates Valley Family and Procedural Medicine at 640 Warrior Drive, Suite 109, Stephens City.
He is charged with brandishing a firearm and carrying a weapon without a permit.
Middlehof posted $5,000 bail, the documents show, and has a hearing scheduled Sept. 1.
