NAPOLEONVILLE, La. (BRPROUD) – On June 10, 27-year-old Vincent Vinny Marks, of Plaquemine was arrested after acting like a police officer while performing a traffic stop on an actual police officer.
The story begins in Bayou Corne on La 70 when a collision almost took place.
Following the near accident, an off-duty Assumption Parish deputy noticed a car flashing its lights behind him.
“The off-duty deputy turned into a convenience store parking lot and the vehicle behind him also turned and then blocked the deputy in,” according to the Assumption Parish Sheriff’s Office.
From there, the off-duty deputy watched as the person impersonating an officer walked up to his vehicle.
After coming in contact with Marks, the Assumption Parish deputy remembered that the 27-year-old had been part of “a domestic incident in Pierre Part earlier this year.”
The following investigation found that Marks was not a police officer.
Marks was subsequently arrested and charged with False Personation of a Peace Officer.
Bond was set at $10,000 for Vincent Vinny Marks.
