NEW ALBANY, Ind. (WHAS11) – A Borden, Indiana man is facing charges after police say he was impersonating a police officer.
Police say an off-duty detective was driving in an unmarked vehicle in New Albany when an unfamiliar gold Crown Victoria attempted a traffic stop around noon on Saturday.
According to the report, 42-year-old John Brock flashed a badge at the officer signaling him to enter a parking lot.
Police say he pulled up next to the officer, yelled obscenities and threats and drove off. They say he later parked his car and went into a local store. The off-duty cop called for back up.
After officers arrived on the scene, they waited for Brock to enter his car and immediately pulled him over.
He was arrested for driving while intoxicated, driving on a suspended license and impersonating a police officer.
Brock is currently booked in the Floyd County jail awaiting arraignment.
