SULLIVAN COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - A Terre Haute man is in jail after deputies in Sullivan County say he impersonated a police officer...for the second time.
Sullivan County Deputies arrested Franklin Akers.
They say it all started when they received calls of a road rage situation in Vigo County.
A woman told police someone chased her off the road and into a pole.
That allegedly happened in Sullivan County.
Witnesses say after the crash, he got out and claimed he was an officer before speeding away.
That man was allegedly Akers.
When police detained him, they say he confessed to impersonating a police officer.
