A man pretending to be a cop in a road rage incident was arrested by police Wednesday. 

Brian Pilling, of Roswell, faces an impersonating an officer charge after he allegedly tried to force a woman out of his way on the road, according to a police report. 

Pilling was tailgating the victim when he pulled to the side of her and yelled expletives, police said. 

A woman says she was pulled over by the man using a fake badge during road rage incident.

“While they were exchanging words and going down the street, (Pilling) said (he was) a police officer and flashed some type of badge,” Roswell police Officer Lisa Holland told Channel 2 Action News. 

Holland said the woman was able to let Pilling merge in front of her and get his license plate. 

Pilling remains in the Fulton County jail.
