CORDELE, GA (WALB) –Cordele Police arrested a Warner Robins man for impersonating a officer after he claimed he worked for the Pentagon.

Officers say William Joiner walked up to officers wearing a sheriff's badge and holding what appeared to be a CB radio Saturday afternoon.

He told officers he was in the area to catch criminals and make drug busts.

When officers asked to see his credentials, he said they didn't need to see his ID because he was also an agent with the Pentagon.

After checking his ID, it was discovered his license had been suspended for thirty years.

When officers found marijuana on Joiner, he told them he was going to use it to make his bust.

They also discovered a half empty bottle of whisky in his car.

"I proceeded to call the Pentagon, the Warner Robins Police Department to verify he did not work then he through out names that he had a son in law, Ronald McDonald that worked for the Fulton county sheriffs office and that's when we just kind of quit with the interviews," said Kris Herrick, Cordele Police.

William Joiner was charged with driving on a suspended license, possession of Marijuana, driving with an open container, and impersonating an officer which is a felony
