East Lansing police say they pulled over Will Brewer on minor traffic violation. The arresting officers claim Brewer was drinking. Upon being pulled over authorities say he miss-identified himself with a badge as a Lansing officer and said he was carrying a gun.
Police say Brewer later admitted he was on administrative leave in connection with misconduct with a Lansing citizen.
Captain Ray Hall of Lansing police said, "We pan to launch a full investigation into the matter following the criminal charges in East Lansing."
Police also say Brewer used Jeromy Churchill's badge.
Churchill, a roommate of Brewer, works for Lansing's Police Department.
Police say Churchill could also be reprimanded if he willfully gave the badge to Brewer.
