Madison County Sheriff's Office

An Oneida man has been arrested for allegedly impersonating a police officer.

The Madison County Sheriff's Office says 22-year old Christopher DeFazio was involved in a road rage incident with another motorist.

Authorities say during the altercation, DeFazio, who was dressed in a security officer uniform, shined a flashlight in the eyes of the motorist and told the motorist that he was a Madison County Sheriff's Deputy.

They say he also talked into what appeared to be a police radio pretending to call for police backup.

DeFazio is charged with criminal impersonation.

If anyone has any information of other incidents of DeFazio impersonating a police officer, they're asked to call the Madison County Sheriff's Office at 315-366-3009.
