KINGMAN, Ariz. -- A Kingman man is facing felony charges after pretending to be a federal U.S. marshal and shooting at a moving vehicle, according to authorities.

Vincent Nicholas Demarco, 47, has been booked on four counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, two counts of disorderly conduct with a weapon, two counts of endangerment and one count of impersonating a peace officer, the Mohavo County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday.
Deputies said Demarco believed that a group of women at a nearby residence had stolen his dog.
They said Demarco confronted them regarding the dog and presented himself as a U.S. marshal. He then allegedly fired two rounds at the women as they drove away.
A neighbor and her 2-year-old son were nearby at the time. No one was injured.
Deputies recovered two guns stuffed in Demarco's waistband.
Demarco was booked into Mohave County Jail.
