REPORT: Police impersonator pulls over woman, chases her on foot
Clay County authorities are investigating the report of a gun-toting police impersonator who pulled over a woman on a Clay County road, then chased her through a wooded area.
The Clay County Sheriff's Office received a 911 call around 10:43 a.m. on Tuesday from a motorist at the intersection of state roads 246 and 159. There, the motorist told police they located a female who told them she was being chased by a male who was carrying a gun and claiming to be a police officer.
The victim told county deputies she was traveling west on County Road 850 South when she noticed a black sport-utility vehicle behind her displaying flashing lights. She pulled over to the side of the road and a male exited the SUV.
The female told police that there was a brief confrontation with the male and she was able to get away.
She then ran through the woods to 246 where she was able to flag down a passing motorist for help.
Anyone with information about this incident is urged to contact the CCSO at 812-446-2535.
