Bond was set at $50,000 Wednesday for a man accused of impersonating a police officer. Jason Gurneau is charged with one felony count of false personation of a peace officer, as well as a parole violation.

Investigators say Gurneau approached officers while they were conducting a traffic stop on the North Side Tuesday and displayed a badge as he asked if they needed help.

The officers asked Gurneau for proper police ID. They say he admitted he wasn't an officer and was taken into custody.
