Famed bodybuilder and eight-time Mr. Olympia winner Ronnie Coleman was arrested Friday and charged with falsely identifying himself as a police officer.
During a traffic stop in Dalworthington Gardens, Coleman told a police officer, who had stopped him for speeding, that he was an officer in nearby Arlington, police said. Coleman then said he was a reserve officer and later said he was an officer for a hospital, according to police.
Dalworthington Gardens police Sgt. David Henderson said Coleman also produced a badge but that a records check indicated that he hadnâ??t been a licensed officer since 2003.
Coleman, 45, posted bail Friday and was released from jail.
