Terrell police have arrested a Royse City man for allegedly impersonating a public servant.
Police said Dallas Foy Browning, 20, of was arrested Tuesday after their investigation began last week.
Browning is accused of displaying red and blue lights on the front of a dark blue Ford SUV he was driving, which was later determined to be a rental vehicle, police said. He then identified himself to a homeless man as an undercover Terrell Police Department officer.
Browning drove the homeless man to a restaurant, where he also stated he was a police officer to the restaurant manager, police said.
The latest news from around North Texas.
Investigators became aware of the alleged actions and first questioned Browning over the phone, during which he allegedly told a detective that he was employed by an unidentified fire department in a large metro area.
A captain at that fire department told the investigators that Browning is not and has not been employed there, police said.
Then, during a voluntary in-person interview, Browning again allegedly claimed to work for the fire department for which authorities had already verified he did not, and he was arrested on the impersonation charge.
