FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla. – A Palm Coast man is behind bars in Flagler County Wednesday after being arrested for impersonating a police officer and using a blue light to pull people over, police said.

The Flagler County Sheriff's Office arrested 42-year-old Shaun Eric Fuller on a warrant issued in Putnam County Tuesday afternoon, and he is being held on a $50,008 bond.

According to police reports, a Palatka woman said she was pulled over by a car with a blue light on the dashboard on Highway 207 and was approached by Fuller, who said that he was a law enforcement officer.

Fuller then reportedly warned the woman about a perceived traffic violation and drove off.
