CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) -- Cedar City's manager has been cited for allegedly impersonating a police officer.

According to a report from the Iron County Sheriff's Office, Jim Allan, who has a police badge with the title "city manager" on it, allegedly pulled over a vehicle on I-15. Allan then flashed his badge and asked the driver for his license and registration.

When the driver of the vehicle got suspicious he called dispatch. Dispatchers said there was not an officer in the vicinity. The driver then took down the license plates number and filed a report.

Allen said the badge was issued to him and he was not trying to portray himself as a police officer. He said the commercial truck was being driven recklessly and he wanted to report him to his employer.

Allen will have to go before a judge on the class B misdemeanor charge.
