A southern Indiana man who allegedly impersonated a police officer was arrested after he made the mistake of pulling over an off-duty State Police detective.
John A. Brock of Borden faces charges of impersonating a police officer, operating a vehicle while intoxicated and driving with a suspended license. The 42-year-old Borden man was being held Sunday at the Floyd County Jail, pending an initial court hearing.
The News and Tribune reports Brock was arrested Saturday after he allegedly pulled over an off-duty State Police detective sergeant, flashed a gold badge at him and motioned him into a parking lot.
Brock allegedly pulled up next to the detective, told him he was an officer and cursed and yelled before driving off. He was arrested after exiting a nearby store.
