Two of the three Texas firefighters involved in a recent harassment incident reportedly impersonated police officers earlier this month.

The arrests come after police say three Little River-Academy firefighters used their flashing lights to “box in” a woman as she was driving down a city street.

In a separate May incident, police found that all three firefighters had been to the same woman’s house a month prior, and two of them said they were police officers.

John Burroughs and James Mercer came to the victim’s house the night of May 1, claiming to be Bell County law enforcement officers.  They then told the woman they were there to serve her husband a citation.

According to KCENTV, the two were also present when fellow firefighter Joshua Adkins exited his vehicle and drew down on the woman with a handgun during the “boxing in” incident.

All three men were charged for impersonating a public servant, and each of their bonds was set at $100,000.

It is unknown why the woman was targeted.
