Arnold Man Arrested for Impersonating Police Officer
A man, whom police say was intoxicated, was attempting to pull over a vehicle in Glen Burnie.
An Arnold man faces charges of impersonating an officer and driving while intoxicated, after an Anne Arundel County police officer identified the man's civilian vehicle as he attempted to pull over another vehicle early Sunday.
According to police, an officer working an overnight shift saw a black Ford Crown Victoria pulling into the 7-Eleven parking lot at the intersection of Furnace Branch Road East and Point Pleasant Road in Glen Burnie shortly after 2 a.m. The vehicle was reportedly operating a red rotational light on the dashboard, and the driver was attempting to pull over another vehicle.
The county officer checked the department's data system and determined the Ford was not a police vehicle, but owned by a civilian.
Police arrested the man, Zachary Allan Butler, 23, of Arnold and charged him with impersonating a police officer and driving while intoxicated.
