BROWER MADE UP AN ELABORATE STORY ABOUT WHY HE WAS
he claimed to be in the area.
doing what he called a big drug bust, several complaints
didn't believe the gun to be real and didn't believe
he was a real police officer
POLICE SAY THE MAN ALSO BURGLARIZED AN APARTMENT.
BUT THAT'S NOT ALL.
he approached this lady and said hang onto my bike
and i'll get a hold of later to get it back and if
you don't i will put a bullet into your head
HE WAS QUICKLY ARRESTED.

DOESN'T SEEM RIGHT, PLEASE CALL 911 IMMEDIATELY.
