Richard Jackson Sleeper had cut off a 75-year-old man near a gated community in New Port Richey and told him he’d have to issue the man a citation for having an obscured license tag, reports the Tampa Bay Times in St. Petersburg.

But there was a problem: Sleeper is not a law enforcement office.

When the man’s passenger called real cops, Sleeper tried to flee but the 75-year-old man followed him, according to the arrest report.

And in Siesta Key, near Sarasota,  Jordan Alexander Letschert, 29, allegedly posed as a federal marshal while at a nightclub, where he flashed a badge at a manager and told him he was there to make an arrest, reports the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

When the club’s manager inquired about the arrest, Letschert said, “It has to be serious to cross my desk,” according to the arrest report.
