WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Authorities in Sedgwick County say a Wichita man suspected of impersonating a deputy was arrested after calling 911 to say his pickup truck had been stolen.

KAKE-TV reports (https://bit.ly/K3MuYA ) the incident began around 1 a.m. Wednesday when a man driving a pickup truck with a siren and red-and-blue lights stopped another driver, who was a security guard.

The two men got out of their vehicles and asked each other for identification. The security guard became suspicious and drove away with the phony deputy in pursuit.

Real deputies chased the impersonator’s pickup at speeds up to 110 mph before he lost them. He later called 911 saying his truck had been stolen and he was lost in a field, where officers found him and took him into custody.
