A man is behind bars Thursday after he was arrested for reportedly impersonating a federal officer, according to the St. Augustine Police Department.
Police say they got a call in the area of Bridge Street and Martin Luther King Avenue in St. Augustine about a man threatening two people.
When they arrived, they came in contact with Silbert Johnson and the two victims in a pick-up truck.
Johnson told police the driver of the truck yelled at him to get out of the road. The victims told police, however, he was swerving along the middle of the road on his bicycle and yelled at them "I know where you f***ing live."
The victims said they turned off onto a side street to go home, but when they got onto Bridge Street, they said Johnson was in front of them again. They said he stopped at the intersection of MLK Avenue and Bridge Street, threw his bike in front of their vehicle and tried pulling the passenger door to get inside. They said he also said he was a federal officer and ordered them to open the door.
Police asked Johnson if this is true, but he said he told them he was a federal employee and never identified himself as a federal officer.
Witnesses told police they heard him shout he was a federal officer, according to the report.
Johnson was arrested and transported to the St. Johns County Jail. Johnson also claimed he was tased by police, but no officers discharged their tasers, according to the report.
