LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Metro police have arrested a man they say was impersonating a police officer.

Tuesday, an undercover police detective was posing as a prostitute for a sting operation near the intersection of 4th and Iowa Streets. Investigators say 38-year-old Charles Hart pulled up in what looked like an unmarked police car with lights and sirens on. Officers say he then tried to solicit the undercover officer for sex.

Hart was arrested and charged with impersonation a peace officer and loitering for prostitution.
