HOT SPRINGS, Ark. (AP) - A former Garland County jail employee has been arrested after she told authorities that she and another man accused of impersonation dressed up as sheriff’s deputies together.

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette (http://bit.ly/1PNBX4s ) reports that 37-year-old Shannon Newman is charged with criminal impersonation.

She was also terminated from her job after she told authorities that she and 25-year-old Wilmar Perez drove around in deputy attire and patrolled areas of Garland County.

Perez was arrested Saturday by a deputy responding to a report of a suspicious vehicle. He was charged with criminal impersonation and carrying a firearm.

Garland County Sheriff Mike McCormick says he was “very disappointed” to learn about the accusations against Newman.
