A New Hampshire man was arrested for impersonating a police officer, pulling people over and identifying himself as a first responder at accidents.

Obadiah Croteau, who reportedly provides “bodyguard services” for his company, Propel Entertainment, was arrested on Thursday after authorities named him as a suspect in an investigation that dates back to fall of last year.

Despite having no LE credentials, First Responder training or even a license to provide security, Croteau had rigged his Dodge Charger to look like a New Hampshire State Police interceptor, complete with center console mods, cameras, lights and a K-9 sticker.

Croteau showed up at multiple accident scenes in Merrimack, often taking down personal information, providing aid and even telling people he would provide roadside assistance.

To make matters worse, he was found with an ID card printer, which allowed him to create IDs for credentials he did not have.

According to the Boston Globe, Croteau is facing charges of impersonating law enforcement and misdemeanors of not having security services and emergency medical licenses.
