A man claiming to be a law enforcement officer as he ordered people off a Siesta Key beach did not realize that one of those beachcombers was an off-duty Venice police officer, the Sheriff’s Office says.

On Sunday, sheriff’s deputies arrested Oscar Mondeja, 39, of the 1800 block of 19th Street in Sarasota, on charges that include impersonating a law enforcement officer, resisting an officer and having a dog on the beach.

The off-duty officer called deputies after Mondeja, who also claimed his dog was a police dog, refused to show him identification.

Deputies claim Mondeja fought with them during his arrest and attempted to kick out the window of a patrol car.
