DATELINE (AP) - A 21-year-old Lincoln man has been sentenced to nearly two years in jail for impersonating a police officer.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports (https://bit.ly/1SHJr96 ) that Al Williams Jr. was sentenced Friday after being found guilty in December of two counts of impersonating an officer, attempting to obstruct police and disturbing the peace - all misdemeanors. Online court records show he was sentenced to 21 months.

Authorities say Williams pulled over or tried to pull over several drivers last year. One victim included a woman he stopped, ordered out of her car and forced her to get on her knees while her 6-year-old child was in the car.

Police say he tried to avoid arrest and was hiding on an elderly couple’s porch when officers found him.
