A 65-year-old Macon man was charged with impersonating a police officer Monday after he allegedly flashed a badge at a fellow motorist, turned on blue and red lights on his dash and pulled over a car on Eisenhower Parkway about 12:40 p.m., according to a Macon police report.
John Harvey Zodun told police the driver of a Ford Edge cut him off, so he used the lights and a badge to stop the car. After stopping, he said the car struck the rearview mirror of his Ford Expedition, according to the report, released Tuesday.
The driver of the Ford Edge told police Zodun pulled a gun on him and his car was struck by the Expedition when it later pulled away, according to the report.
Police didnt find enough evidence to prove the alleged vehicle damage or to say for sure that a gun was involved. An officer seized a gun, holster, two Houston County Sheriffs Office junior deputy badges, a Houston County Sheriffs Office badge, and the red and blue lights, according to the report.
Police determined Zodun did not have arrest powers, according to the report.
