Would this uniform fool you?

A Euclid resident has been charged with impersonating a police officer after he was wearing what Eastlake Police said appeared to be a police uniform.

Cleveland police badges were sewn on the jacket.

Police arrested the man who admitted he was not an officer. It's not clear what he was doing at the time of the arrest. 

The man's homemade uniform was confiscated after his arrest. Officials have not released his identity.
