How to set flag on linked issue during scriptrunner clone issue

I am trying to clone an issue to another project and also set the Flagged custom field to "Impediment" on the cloned issue:

import com.atlassian.jira.component.ComponentAccessor
def customFieldManager = ComponentAccessor.getCustomFieldManager()
def cf = customFieldManager.getCustomFieldObjectByName("Flagged")
def fieldConfig = cf.getRelevantConfig(issue)
def optionsManager = ComponentAccessor.getOptionsManager()
def value = optionsManager.getOptions(fieldConfig)?.find { it.toString() == 'Impediment' }
issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, value)

When I execute this code, I see an exception in the JIRA logs:

Based on the exception, I suspect the issue here is how I'm populating value, but I don't know how else to get it. The line in question was based on this answer, but I may be misunderstanding it.

Thanks!

The error is here:

Caused by: java.lang.ClassCastException: com.atlassian.jira.issue.customfields.option.LazyLoadedOption cannot be cast to java.util.Collection

This is because Flagged is (normally) a check box field and takes a Collection of Option objects.

So changing the last line to:

issue.setCustomFieldValue(cf, [value])

should work.

Attempting to get value this way also does not work, despite this being, I think, the more direct route:

def value = optionsManager.getOptions(fieldConfig).getOptionById(10000)
