FRONT ROYAL -- A Manassas man was arrested in Front Royal on Sunday on two charges after showing police a driver's license issued by the "Kingdom of Heaven."
Randy R. Linamen, of 8724 Round Lane, Manassas, was stopped by Front Royal police during a DUI checkpoint on Commerce Avenue.
Linamen, who was operating a van when he was stopped, was asked for his driver's license by town police detective Jason Winner. He then produced a document titled "Drivers License" issued from the "Kingdom of Heaven."
When Winner questioned Linamen about the license, he stated that Winner was not upholding his oath and was committing treason, according to a Police Department news release.
While Winner was conversing with Linamen, another detective observed "what appeared to be two speed loaders in the center console of the van," the release states.
When Winner asked Linamen to exit his vehicle, Linamen attempted to drive away from the checkpoint, police said.
He was then physically removed from his vehicle by the officers. At that point, according to the release, a loaded Dan Wesson .357 caliber handgun was observed in the driver's door pocket of the van.
Linamen was charged with possession of a firearm after being convicted of a felony, and operating a motor vehicle after being declared a habitual offender. He was transported to the Warren County Jail, the release states.
A sweep of the vehicle
produced what appeared to be three pipe bombs under the front driver seat of the van.
The vehicle was cleared and the items were deemed to be "safe and contained no explosive material," the release says.
Linamen was held without bond, and is scheduled to appear in Warren County General District Court at 10 a.m. Aug. 16.
