We all have that one show on Netflix that we can’t get enough of but it’s rarely recommended that you try to bring that show’s characters to life outside of a simple costume party or convention… especially if it involves you becoming a fake police officer.
According to The Red & Black, Athens-Clarke County Police recently received a call from a familiar but odd name—Sheriff Longmire.
If the name sounds familiar to you, it’s the name of a character from Netflix’s “Longmire.”
Things only got even more comical when the man asked to speak with Officer Ferguson, yet another character from the Netflix show.
Unfortunately, the caller’s shenanigans didn’t stop at a poorly thought out prank call to the police. When police arrived to speak with the mysterious caller, they discovered the true heart of the problem.
This “sheriff” was a drunk student who had no business touching the bottle in the first place.
“When police requested the student show his ID, the student pulled out a Georgia’s driver’s license, but quickly ‘tucked it away’ and pulled out another Georgia driver’s license,” The Red & Black’s Savannah Peat reported.
Turns out that the student, identified as Aaron Rzucidlo, was clearly not a sheriff, not sober and not old enough to legally drink.
Rzucidlo’s attempt to become Sheriff Longmire for the night ended with an arrest and a variety of charges that include impersonating a police officer and underage consumption of alcohol.
They say you should never meet your heroes.
Well, let this be a reminder to all that you shouldn’t impersonate them either.
