A Hemet man was arrested for impersonating a police officer after trying to pull over a vehicle driven by an off-duty Sheriff's deputy, authorities said.

The deputy was driving his personally owned, unmarked vehicle on Winchester Road near Murrieta Hot Springs Road about 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday, according to a news release. The deputy reported that a white Dodge Dart pulled up behind him and activated emergency lights and a police siren.

Suspicious of the vehicle, the deputy did not pull over. After the Dodge Dart passed him and continued eastbound on Winchester Road, the deputy took a picture of the suspicious vehicle's license plate on a cell phone. Using that information, deputies located the vehicle in Hemet and discovered LED light strips in the upper windshield area and a public address system installed in the vehicle.

Johnnie Sellers, 21, of Hemet, the registered owner of the vehicle, was arrested and booked into the Southwest Detention Center.
