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 on the 7300 block of Furnace Branch Road East shortly after 2 a.m. The vehicle was 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.
