Hallandale Beach Man Accused of Impersonating Police Officer: BSO

A Hallandale Beach man is accused of impersonating a police officer and now faces serious charges, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

Deputies released new photos showing the type of law enforcement attire Jeffrey Jean, 30, was wearing when he was arrested on Sunday.

BSO said Jean was using red and white flashing lights and sirens in his vehicle to navigate through traffic that had backed up, due to a crash in unincorporated Fort Lauderdale.

When deputies pulled him over, they found a gun belt with a loaded handgun, a stun gun and pepper spray. He was also wearing a vest that said "Public Safety Officer" on it.

Jean is reportedly employed by Knight Guard Protection Services, a security services company that provides uniformed guards to other businesses.

He faces multiple charges including prohibited use of lights and sirens, reckless driving and possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

It's unclear whether Jean has an attorney.
