A man has been arrested by the Ocoee Police Department following an incident that took place in March. 

Officers with the Ocoee PD responded to a road rage report on South Kissimmee Avenue and Maguire Road on March 17. 

The victim reported a Dodge Ram 1500, bearing a University of South Florida specialty tag, drove up behind him and displayed a small red and blue light from the front dash. 

The victim believed the driver was a police officer and pulled over.

According to the police report, the driver of the truck was identified as Sean Mead. 

The Ocoee PD said Mead pulled up next to the victim, presented a badge and pointed a handgun at him, identifying himself as a police officer. He also displayed a ballistic vest that had the word "police" on it. 

Detectives said during the investigation, they also learned Mead worked as a security guard. 

A search of Mead's truck revealed items including police patches, badges and name plates.

The Ocoee PD asks that any residents who have information regarding similar incidents, contact the department at (407) 905-3160.
