(Memphis) A Memphis man is facing charges of criminal impersonation for using a some sort of badge to pull over a car in his neighborhood.

Karl Kieffer is also charged with false imprisonment for using his truck to block in the driver's car.

It happened along Walnut Grove in East Memphis.

A young couple told police they were looking for a friend's house and stopped in front of a house in the 200 Block of Gardenia.

They say that's when Kieffer first approached their vehicle.

They say Kieffer followed them all the way to Walnut Grove and used what looked like a police badge to pull them over and then pulled his truck in front of their car, blocking a lane of traffic.

Kieffer was arrested back in September after police say he punched a driver who cut him off at Summer and Berclair.

The other driver told police that Kieffer had a badge and gun strapped to his waist.

People who live on Kieffer's street say they often see him wearing the badge and gun.

    You people who live on Kieffer’s street and have seen this deranged idiot carry a badge and gun. You should be arrested for not turning him in, months ago.

    You can elect to have a badge with your handgun permit, which is the dumbest idea ever, but I bet this is what he has. I’ve had it happen to me as a prank by someone on a four wheeler with blue lights who also had a handgun and a badge that was his license to carry the firearm.

    Agree it was excessive but would like to hear both sides of the story before comparing him to some of the above comments.

    Joe can’t get over the knockout game, what female knocked your weak a. out got you pissed off. Blacks couldn’t stand to vote for another loser we picked a winner the last 2 (count them) elections. The reason for the 8 babies the abortion clinics were filled with your kind we realized abortion is for yall. Good you got a good memory on who did what and when but ot won’t help you when you bow before GOD. I rather see gold teeth instead of Meth Mouth any day, and baggy pants looks better than the crack of all white butt showing. How about that 19 year old serial killer? Changing face but the color remain the same.

      You and Joe are both idiots, trying to out do each other by quoting behaviors that shouldn’t be tolerated on either side, regardless of what color you are. Gold Teeth, Baggy Pants, Meth Mouth, Eight Baby Daddies, Food Stamps for the Greedy (not the needy), none of these are acceptable behaviors, but you guys make them sound like they are okay as long as they are done by your race. Get a grip on your live, you are both missing the boat; you are both racist!
