Comments () A Text Size

Corinth police are searching for a man who impersonated a police officer.

The man pulled over a young woman driving a vehicle within city limits on Interstate 35E at 7 a.m. Wednesday, police said. The man searched the woman’s car and threatened her with arrest. The woman was eventually released, police said.

According to reports, the man was last observed driving a silver Ford Crown Victoria equipped with a light bar inside the top of the front windshield. The vehicle also has an audible siren, police said. The woman did not get the license plate number.

Police said the man is described as black, approximately 6 feet tall and 40 years of age, with hairy arms and a tattoo on his left hand.

He was last dressed in police-style clothing with handcuffs visible, according to reports.

Anyone with information about the man’s identity or any more information about the case should call the Corinth Police Department at 940-498-2017.
