Woman facing charges after allegedly impersonating officer during traffic stop
EDMOND, Okla. – A metro woman is learning a lesson the hard way after she allegedly lied to police about being a law enforcement officer.
Over the weekend, an Oklahoma County Sheriff’s deputy pulled over a car near Edmond Rd. and Kelly.
Authorities say they noticed the passenger wasn’t wearing a seat belt.
While speaking with the driver, Bridget Henderson allegedly told the deputy she was a juvenile probation officer.
The deputy asked for proof.
While she wasn’t able to provide any credentials, she gave the deputy the name of a supervisor.
However, the supervisor didn’t back up her story.
Officials say Henderson used to work for the juvenile center years ago but was never a probation officer.
Henderson was arrested and booked into the Oklahoma County Jail.
She is now facing a charge of impersonating a law enforcement officer.
