Anthony McGuire, from Oregon, impersonated a sheriff’s deputy while he test drove an SUV and pulled over a motorcycle, according to The Associated Press.

McGuire, of Salem, was taken into custody on Saturday after the motorcyclist and two employees of the car lot realized something was wrong and called deputies, according to Sgt. Chris Baldridge of the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.

McGuire went to Good Fellows Auto Sales for three straight days and told employees that he was a sheriff’s deputy. Each day he visited he asked to test drive a black Chevrolet Tahoe. The third day he visited, two employees who became suspicious of McGuire went with him on the test drive.

Just one street from the car lot, McGuire put the window down and yelled at a motorcyclist to pull over. He told the operator he was stopped for speeding.

Baldridge said that McGuire did not have a badge or any identification. The employees who witnessed the incident said the motorcycle was not speeding, but passed the SUV because it was driving too slow.

“They said the motorcyclist really wasn’t doing anything wrong,” Baldridge said. “He was acting for his own safety to get around the slow-moving vehicle.”

McGuire, after confessing to the crime, was charged with criminal impersonation, which is a misdemeanor.
