Teen Accused of Posing as Cop in Palm Beach County

A teen security guard is accused of posing as a police officer in Palm Beach County.

Cristian Leon, 19, was arrested Friday for impersonating a law enforcement officer and false imprisonment, Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office officials said.

Officials said Leon pulled over a woman while he was dressed in uniform with a gun holstered to his pants. The driver became suspicious when he started getting off topic, so she drove off and called 911.

Tips and a sketch released by the sheriff's office led to his arrest. Leon later confessed to pulling the woman over but said he didn't get out of his car and wasn't wearing a firearm, officials said.
