Police arrest a man accused of pretending to work for law enforcement, and trying to obtain pain medications at OU Medical Center.

Police with the hospital were called when a suspicious man in a bullet-proof vest asked a physician assistant for the medicine. The PA asked the man to remove the vest, but he refused.

An officer spoke to the suspect, and he said his name was Aaron Buchannan. The 33-year-old man claimed he was an armed security guard, and a reserve police officer with the Spencer Police Department. He was wearing a black belt similar to those worn by real police and security officers; he also had a large badge, handcuffs, pepper spray, an expandable baton, ammunition, and an empty pistol holster.

Police confirmed Buchannan was not with the Spencer Police Department. He was also carrying an expired CLEET license. When police searched Buchannan's truck in the parking lot, they found a firearm.

Buchannan was arrested for impersonating a police officer, improper use of a state seal, wearing body armor in the commission of a felony, and possession of a controlled dangerous substance.
