Former Boise State player arrested for impersonating officer
Bacon, who transferred to Portland State last year, has been under investigation since March 22 when an officer saw him allegedly yelling at a female driver alongside a road. Bacon told the officer he was an off-duty cop from California and had pulled the woman over for speeding and reckless driving.
After an investigation and grand jury indictment, Bacon was arrested Tuesday.
“He’s definitely not a cop,” a Sherwood, Ore., spokesman told the Sherwood Gazette. “He’s not old enough to be a police officer.”
Bacon appeared to respond to the arrest on Twitter, writing, “[Two] sides to every story. Don’t believe what you hear.”
