A man who was poorly impersonating police attempted to arrest a real officer at a Whole Foods store in Foggy Bottom, an area in Washington, DC.
The incident occurred on Monday after reports of an aggressive man harassing customers at the location, waving a pair of handcuffs and threatening to arrest people in the self-checkout line.
When real police arrived on the scene, the man became combative, forcing officers to subdue him. When he was ordered to stop resisting, the retorted with “You stop resisting!”
During the struggle, the impostor -identified as 47-year-old Evan Jerrold Graham- managed to cuff an officer’s right wrist.
After finally subduing the suspect, police found a second set of handcuffs and a single bullet in his pants.
According to NBC Washington, Graham was arrested on charges of simple assault, resisting arrest, possession of unregistered ammunition (it is DC, after all), false impersonation of a police officer and possession of implements of a crime.
Ironically, Graham didn’t have the key to the non-standard cuffs that managed to get slapped on the police officer. While police managed to break them off, the cuff was so tightly clasped that the officer needed to be medically evaluated.
