TULSA, Okla. - A man is in custody Tuesday after police say they caught him impersonating an officer in midtown Tulsa.
Tulsa police say one of their officers were on routine patrol near Yale and Admiral around 12:30 a.m. Monday when he saw a vehicle with a light bar on top similar to the department's patrol cars.
Police say the driver turned on the light bar and their officer pulled over -- thinking it was another officer who wanted to talk to him.
The officer then realized the light bar was different from normal Tulsa patrol cars. The driver drove around the officer in an attempt to evade him, police say.
Police say the officer pulled the driver over to find the driver -- Aaron Forbis -- with a Chevy Impala LS outfitted with the light bar.
Officers say Forbis was intoxicated. He is facing charges for impersonating a police officer, DUI, and other traffic charges.
Tulsa police posted the arrest on their Facebook page with a warning to drivers about fake police cars:
