Man arrested for impersonating police officer

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – A man was arrested for recently impersonating a police officer.

According to police, Gary Cooper pretended to be an IMPD officer at the US Mayors Conference in downtown Indianapolis.

Court documents said Cooper was wearing an authentic-looking police uniform at the JW Marriot Sunday.

Investigators said someone complained to IMPD after Cooper reportedly told their group to leave the building or he would arrest them.

Police said Cooper told them he worked for IMPD.

He now faces a preliminary charge of impersonating an officer.
