Carroll County deputies arrested 27-year-old Dustin Ward from Grenada for impersonating an officer.
Yesterday, Ward placed a 911 call to Montgomery County EOC stating he was a Vaiden police officer responding to a shooting in Vaiden and would be traveling at a high rate of speed through Montgomery County.
Carroll County deputies located Ward at the 35/55 Truck Stop in Vaiden. Ward was wearing a police utility belt with a handgun, handcuffs, pepper spray, baton, shirt and cap with the word police.
Ward is not a Vaiden officer and there was not a shooting in Vaiden. Ward was placed under arrest with his own handcuffs and transported to the Carroll County Jail.
