A Fergus Falls man was cited for impersonating a police officer after he allegedly texted his ex-girlfriend identifying himself as an officer, according to police.

The 20-year-old man called police Saturday because he wanted the woman to come and retrieve her things, and police told him they could only stand by for a property exchange. When police spoke with the woman, she showed them text messages from the man in which he stated he was a police officer and the woman needed to call him or the police would come and arrest her.
