Alabama– an Alabama man was arrested for impersonating a police officer. The incident occurred when he pulled over a driver, but the driver became suspicious and called the real police. Quick thinking on the driver’s part helped prevent a potentially dangerous situation.
Joshua Salters, a 32-year-old man, was recently arrested in Tuscaloosa County, Alabama, for impersonating a police officer. According to The Thread, Salters drove behind a car and turned on his fake police sirens and lights. He then parked in front of the car and signaled for the driver of the parked car to leave, as if he was conducting a traffic stop.
The driver’s suspicion was piqued by the strange behavior of the passenger. Sensing something amiss, the driver wasted no time and immediately contacted the Tuscaloosa Cty. Police to report the incident. Thanks to the prompt response of the authorities, Salters was quickly tracked down at a nearby gas station.
Salters was arrested and charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance, possession of brass knuckles, possession of a forged instrument for the counterfeit cash, and impersonating a police officer. His bond was set at $30,500.
