Man Impersonating US Marshal Behind Bars

    Montague county sheriff's officials say a man impersonating a US Marshal is now behind bars. 24- year-old Robert Philips in in jail on numerous charges, including impersonating a public servant, which is a third degree felony.
    Sheriff's officials say Tuesday night Philips used lights on his dash board to pull over a woman and claimed to be a US Marshal.
    But when the woman reportedly smelled alcohol on him as well as asked to see his badge, which he could not find she became suspicious.
    Officials say Philips let her go and she reported it to the Sheriff's Office.
    Two days later, Philips was found and arrested.
    But sheriff's officials are warning residents to be careful.
    "Question them. You don't have to exit your vehicle. You can roll the window down enough tht they can pass the drivers license out they can ask for their ID. We are all required to carry what's called a T-Close, Texas Commission Law Enforcement Officers License ID," said Sheriff Paul Cunningham, Montague County.
    Sheriff's officials don't believe this was Philips' first time. So, they're asking anyone who believes they were pulled over by Philips, call them at 894-2871.
