Paul G. Andreu, 46, of Faller Drive was taken into custody as he walked his dog just after midnight for allegedly violating a domestic-violence restraining order, New Milford Police Chief Frank Papapietro said this afternoon.

In his waistband, the chief said, Andreu was carrying a concealed Glock .40-caliber handgun loaded with hollow-point bullets — with a round in the chamber.

He was also carrying a gold New York City Sergeant shield, three ID cards from the NYPD identifying him as a sergeant, and a bogus pistol permit, Papapietro said.

The 5-foot-9-inch, 190-pound Andreau was being held in the Bergen County Jail as an investigation involving New York City Police Internal Affairs continues.

His combined bail this morning was $38,000.

He is charged with:

  • impersonating a police officer
  • making terroristic threats & simple assault (from the domestic violence complaint)
  • illegal weapon and ammunition possession
  • three counts of using false documents as ID
  • criminal mischief
