CULLMAN, Ala. – A Baileyton man has been charged with impersonating a peace officer.

According to the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to a call of an unmarked vehicle flashing blue lights and attempting to stop someone on March 15. Sheriff Matt Gentry said the suspect’s vehicle struck the victim’s vehicle during the attempt to stop them.

“The caller also advised that someone in the vehicle in question had fired shots at the victim,” Gentry said. “While responding, CCSO deputies located a vehicle matching the suspect vehicle stuck in the mud in a parking area near Arab.”

Larry Trebor Butler, 35, of Baileyton, was identified as the driver. Working blue lights were allegedly discovered inside the vehicle and two weapons were allegedly located in and around the vehicle.

The CCSO said deputies were able to corroborate the victim’s story and Butler was arrested.

Butler is charged with stalking, impersonating a peace officer, reckless endangerment, obstructing a criminal investigation (bond revocation) and receiving stolen property (bond revocation).

“I am so proud of the deputies’ quick response and hard work on this case,” Gentry said. “When someone is impersonating a law enforcement officer it is so important to put a stop to it immediately. We at the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office devote our lives to keeping our citizens safe, and we don’t want anyone or anything compromising the trust between us and the community. We are always stronger together.”
