GLENDORA (CBS) — A juvenile probation officer for San Bernardino County was behind bars Saturday on suspicion of impersonating a police officer in Glendora.
Police say 43-year-old Douglass Weaver was taken into custody Friday on suspicion of false imprisonment and impersonating a police officer.
"It was only through the many tips that were provided by the public and the diligence and long hours put in by Glendora police detectives that led to this arrest," said Glendora police Chief Rob Castro. "It proves the value of the partnership that has been developed with the community."
Weaver is accused of impersonating an officer during a traffic stop at around 11 p.m. on May 11, on the Sunflower off-ramp of the Foothill (210) Freeway.
He allegedly gave a drunk driver a ride home and returned to the house five days later and harassed the woman there, according to police.
Weaver is being held in the Glendora jail in lieu of $50,000 bail and is scheduled to be arraigned on May 30, in West Covina, according to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's web site.
Michelle Scray, chief probation officer, issued a statement, saying conduct "that brings discredit upon the (department) and the professional men and women who work here" would not be tolerated.
