A 41-year-old Midland, Texas, man got a surprise when he tried to impersonate a police officer and berate a fellow driver. The driver he chastised turned out to be a police detective.

Eleazar Cisneros confronted a driver, said he was a police officer and complained about being cut off in the parking lot of a burger joint.

When Cisneros was asked to show his police identification, he said he was working under cover.

Cisneros subsequently said he was in a police academy, then acknowledged that his connection to policing was limited to taking some criminal justice classes, according to an arrest affidavit examined by the Midland Reporter-Telegram.

He was jailed Sunday on $25,000 bond and now could face up to 10 years in prison if convicted of the third-degree felony charge of impersonating or exerting the functions of a public servant.
