Orange Police responded to 240 Indian River Road regarding a disturbance complaint on Sept. 23 at 4:15 p.m.

During the investigation, officers learned that Anthony White, 47, of  91 Clearview Court, Derby, had gotten into an argument with a taxi driver that was there to pick up a customer. According to the report, White felt that the taxi had blocked his vehicle.

Police said White followed the taxi driver into one of the offices and yelled at him regarding the taxi’s position and threatened to shoot him. He then reportedly showed the taxi driver a badge and handcuffs, implying that he was a police officer. A third party intervened and the arrestee left the area.

Officers located White at his home, where he admitted to his part in the incident and stated that he thought the taxi driver would take him more seriously if the driver thought he was a police officer.

Officers located three fake police badges, a pair of handcuffs, a replica pistol and a folding knife. White was subsequently taken into custody and charged with first-degree threatening, second-degree breach of peace and impersonation of a police officer.

He was held on $5,000 bond for court Sept. 24.
