NEW ALBANY, Ind. (AP) A southern Indiana man who allegedly impersonated a police officer was arrested after he made the mistake of pulling over an off-duty State Police detective.

John A. Brock of Borden faces charges of impersonating a police officer, operating a vehicle while intoxicated and driving with a suspended license. The 42-year-old Borden man was being held Sunday at the Floyd County Jail, pending an initial court hearing.
