A Pike County man was arrested after authorities say he was identifying himself as a law enforcement officer.

A release from the Sheriff’s Department said deputies were sent to the 4000 block of Old Highway 24 on a report of a man impersonating law enforcement. The caller said the suspect came to his house with lights and sirens, and then pointed his finger at him like it was a gun.

Deputies located a vehicle matching the description traveling south on Old Indistrual Road. A deputy pulled over the vehicle and identified the driver as Bobby Dean Perry.

The release says the deputy saw a siren box like the ones police use, a pair of handcuffs, an ASP baton, and lighting equipment inside the car. There was also a badge and a gun and holster.

Perry was taken into custody without incident and charged with Impersonating an Officer. Bond was set at $2,000.
