Freestone County Sheriff’s Office arrested a man falsely claiming to be a Texas Ranger last night.
According to Freestone County Sheriff’s Office, “A subject had a conversation with one of our Deputies and proceeded to inform our Deputy that he was a Texas Ranger. Further conversation lead to the obvious conclusion that this subject was not a Texas Ranger, nor any other licensed Peace Officer anywhere in our state or any other state. The subject was found to also be in possession of an imitation of a Texas Ranger badge.”
The suspect was taken into custody and booked into the Freestone County jail on charges of impersonating an officer.
FCSO said, “We used our authentic badge, real handcuffs, and real police vehicle, and took him to a real jail.”
