Report: Police Impersonator Detains Driver in Brown County

BROWN COUNTY, Texas (KTAB/KRBC) - The Brown County Sheriff's Office arrested an alleged police impersonator accused of following a driver, then holding him at gunpoint in order to detain him early Sunday morning. 

Taezer Thompson, 21, was taken into custody on Hwy 67/377 in Blanket around 4:00 a.m. and charged with Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon and Impersonating a Public Servant. 

An arrest report says Thompson called the Comanche County Sheriff's Office after observing a reckless driver traveling down Hwy 67/377 in Dublin. 

Thompson believed this driver was intoxicated, so he followed him down the Highway until the driver pulled over on the side of the road in Blanket to urinate, according to the report.

The report states Thompson then, "stopped behind [the driver's] vehicle and activated a white off road light bar before pulling a gun on [the driver] and identifying himself as a police officer." Thompson detained the driver until the Comanche County Sheriff's Office and Brown County Sheriff's Office arrived on scene.

The documents also describe Thompson's vehicle, stating he drove a 2003 Chevy Tahoe "equipped with an emergency siren, in car dash camera, white off road light bar across the top of his windshield, and flashing amber warning lights on the rear of his vehicle." 

Thomspon was booked into the Brown County Jail and was released after posting bonds totaling $30,000.
