Ford County Deputies arrest suspect impersonating law enforcement.

It happened early Saturday morning around 1:45 a.m. on Highway 50 ,when deputies were dispatched to a call of a suspicious vehicle that had pulled over a car using emergency lights.

The vehicle using the emergency lights was identified as an older model Crown Victoria with a temporary license plate. When checked against other law enforcement vehicle's plates, it was discovered that the plate didn't match any of them, according to a release from Ford County Sheriffs Office.

An 18-year-old male was arrested during a traffic stop and booked into Ford County Detention Center for false impersonation of a law enforcement officer. That charge carries up to a 5-year prison sentence or fines totalling $1000 or more in certain states.
