Woman facing charges after allegedly impersonating officer during traffic stop

HENDERSON, BRIDGET

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.
