Troup Man Arrested For Impersonating Police Officer

A Troup man is behind bars, charged with impersonating a police officer.

18 year old Sergio Carey was arrested this morning after police say he used blue and red flashing lights to pull over three men. He showed them a fake badge, and allegedly patted them down. He then took their keys, and took off, leaving the men stranded on the side of the road.

Carey remains in the Smith County Jail.

Impersonating a police officer is a 3rd degree felony.
