Big Country man arrested for detaining driver while impersonating officer

BROWN COUNTY, Texas - A Big Country man was arrested by Brown County authorities after claiming to be an officer of the law while detaining an alleged reckless driver.

Brown County deputies responded to a call from Taezer Thompson, 21, early Sunday morning. Thompson told deputies he followed a driver from Dublin to Blanket before the driver pulled over.

That’s when authorities say Thompson activated a light bar on his SUV, pulled out a gun and told the driver he was a police officer.

Thompson then detained the driver and called 911, but ended up in handcuffs himself when the deputies arrived.

Thompson was arrested and charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and impersonating an officer.
