A 30-year-old man was arrested Tuesday after an ongoing investigation revealed that he was impersonating a Border Patrol agent in efforts to get out of traffic tickets.

Over the course of several months, Jose Lopez was pulled over by Palmview police, McAllen police, and Hidalgo County Constable Precinct 4 officials in various speeding and/or reckless driving cases.

In all of the incidents, Lopez claimed he was a Border Patrol agent even going as far as providing agent “credentials”, according to documents.

An internal affairs investigation conducted by U.S. Customs and Border Protection revealed that Lopez was actually a dispatcher for the Border Patrol and not an agent. In one case, Lopez admitted that he was a dispatcher at the McAllen sector after McAllen police pulled him over and noticed that his agent credentials were fake.

Documents show that Lopez was sometimes cited and arrested for the traffic violations.

Palmview police arrested Lopez on Tuesday. He was charged with five counts of impersonating a public servant with a bond set at $100,000.

Currently, the investigation is still ongoing, according to a Palmview Police Department spokesperson.

More details to come as they are available.
