FAYETTEVILLE, N.C. (AP) - Authorities say a Fayetteville police officer was hit by a stun gun while arresting a woman accused of impersonating a police officer.

The Fayetteville Observer (https://bit.ly/1VzNLZj ) reports that an officer accidentally shot an assisting officer with a stun gun Saturday while they were trying to arrest 45-year-old Valeria G. Hadley, who authorities say had shoved the officers and had scratched their wrists and arms.

Fayetteville police spokesman Antoine Kincade says the assisting officer was not seriously injured in the incident.

A warrant says Hadley had called a dispatcher, pretending to be a police officer and demanding to be given information about the owner of a vehicle whose license plate number she dictated. Authorities say arriving officers determined Hadley wasn’t a Fayetteville police officer.

It’s unclear whether she has an attorney.
