Police in Alabama arrest man they say impersonated an officer and tried to arrest the mayor

Police in eastern Alabama arrested a man they say impersonated an officer and tried to arrest the mayor.

The Anniston Star (http://bit.ly/1qtly3Y) reports that police say 59-year-old Bobby Beck showed up at City Hall in Weaver on Tuesday with a badge and a pistol on his belt and said he wanted to talk to Mayor Wayne Willis. When told the mayor wasn't available, he held up a pair of handcuffs and said he'd be back later to arrest him.

He was being held on felony charges of impersonating a peace officer, making a terrorist threat and carrying a pistol without a permit. It wasn't immediately clear if he has a lawyer.

Police Chief Wayne Bush says Beck told police he worked for the FBI and planned to arrest Willis for working part-time as mayor.
