A man pretending to be a police officer was arrested Monday after he tried to make a traffic stop on an off-duty sergeant in Tulare, Visalia police said.

An off-duty sergeant was driving near Mooney and Cartmill avenues at 11:45 p.m. when Brandon Freeman, 29, driving a 2008 white Buick sedan, turned on flashing red lights and signaled the sergeant to pull over for a traffic stop.

The sergeant continued to drive, however, and communicated with on-duty officers to arrange for a traffic stop on Freeman’s car.

Freeman was interviewed and arrested for impersonating an officer and for additional charges. A passenger in Freeman’s car was arrested for outstanding felony warrants.
