A 22-year-old man is accused of impersonating a law enforcement officer at Galleria Dallas on Friday evening.

The Dallas Police Department told NBC DFW that Leadarius Johnson is being held at the Dallas County Jail on a charge of impersonating a public servant. His bond is $100,000. He also had other outstanding warrants.

Officers said Johnson was wearing "police gear with no visible insignia" when he was spotted by a real police officer at about 9 p.m.  Friday.

When questioned, police said Johnson identified himself as a Dallas County Sheriff's Deputy. When pressed for law enforcement credentials, he gave a fake name.

Impersonating a public servant is a third degree felony, which carries 2-to-10 years in prison if convicted.
