A South Florida man has been arrested after pulling over a woman while dressed as a police officer, complete with holstered gun.

The man, identified as a local security guard named Christian Leon, was found after multiple tips came in to the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office following reports by local media.

Leon apparently pulled over the woman while driving a gray or silver Chevy Tahoe or GMC Yukon, but did not use emergency lights. The woman claims she was flagged down by the man who appeared to be in full uniform so she complied and pulled over.

It was after he began asking her questions unrelated to a traffic violation or a crime that she became suspicious, drove off and called 911.
