An Iowa City man was charged Nov. 7 with impersonating a public official after he allegedly referred to himself as a sheriff.

According to a complaint by Coralville police, officers responded to a road-rage situation at the Highway 6 Hy-Vee in Coralville.

Witnesses at the scene said Aaron Fisher, 26, said he was a "sheriff," took down license-plate numbers, and brandished a BB pistol, according to the complaint.

Impersonating a public official is an aggravated misdemeanor.
