KENNER, LA (WVUE) -

A 32-year-old Kenner man was arrested on Friday, again charged with impersonating a police officer.

Patrick Segari, 32, was arrested on Friday afternoon stemming from an incident in early June.

Police say that a 34-year-old woman first reported Segari to police on June 6. The woman claims she was in a Burger King parking lot, located in at 1000 West Esplanade, when a gray vehicle pulled in front of her car and came to a sudden stop. The woman tells police she honked at the vehicle after it did not move for several moments.

White blinking lights were activated on the license plate of the vehicle. Segari allegedly exited the vehicle and approached the woman, stating he was a police officer. The victim states Segari had his hand on a weapon holstered to his right hip.

The suspect asked the female victim if she knew the purpose of a horn, telling her that the driver's test indicates it is for emergency purposes only, according to the victim. Segari then asked for the victim's driver's license. Police say another vehicle honked its horn prompting Segari to tell the victim that he would give her a break as he walked away.  

The victim reported this incident to police and provided a detailed description of the suspect and his vehicle.

On Friday, Kenner Police say they spotted a vehicle matching the description in the 1300 block of West Esplanade Avenue

Police say Segari was interviewed by detectives with the Criminal Investigations Division and admitted that he was involved in the incident. Officers say Segari further stated that he had worked for the Hattiesburg Police Department, in Mississippi. 

Upon contacting the Internal Affairs Division of the Hattiesburg Police Department, it was discovered that Segari was never a police officer and had prior arrests in 2013 for impersonating a police officer and a federal agent in Mississippi.   

He was arrested and charged with one count of impersonating a police officer. 

Officials urge anyone with information concerning Patrick Segari or having been stopped by him to call Kenner Police Detective Michael Archuleta at (504) 712-2253 or Crime Stoppers at (504) 822-1111.

    Welcome in to Juan's World and as you know, this blog that I do is strictly an opinion piece with a few facts sprinkled in here and there. So, with that in mind, I'm under the opinion that the Saints should've been 'expected' to look past the Jets to next weeks rematch with the Falcons. How could they not look ahead to Atlanta coming to the dome next Sunday. And before you go all 'One Game at a Time' on me, think for a second. You're supposed to beat the Jets, who came in 5-8 and wi...

    Three turnovers against the lowly Jets can still get you a win in this league.

If they want to end the 2017 regular season campaign on a win streak, things need to be cleaned up. "Two fumbles, and at times you're going to score.
