ATLANTA (AP) - A Georgia man has been sentenced to nearly two years in federal prison for impersonating an armed Drug Enforcement Administration agent.

Local media outlets say 40-year-old Daniel Harbison was sentenced to one year and nine months on Thursday for impersonating a DEA agent. He previously had been convicted of a felony.

U.S. Attorney John Horn says Harbison was impersonating as an agent for several weeks when he conducted an April 3 traffic stop using green and while flashing LED lights in Doraville, Georgia. Horn says Harbison wore a T-shirt with the printed letters “DEA,” carried a .45 caliber handgun and had a DEA identification card along with a gold and blue badge engraved with the letters “US.”
