NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

A Bourbon Street bouncer has been charged after he impersonated a police officer, according to Louisiana State Police. 

LSP arrested 39-year-old Wayne Lozier Jr. of New Orleans on Sunday after securing an arrest warrant through Orleans Parish. 

The arrest warrant was for aggravated battery and false impersonation of a police officer.

Troopers responded to an incident on Saturday at 3:00 am in the 700 block of Bourbon Street. 

While on foot patrol, troopers saw a male subject being chased on foot by Lozier.

Lozier was wearing tactical pants, a gun belt with a Glock handgun and a tactical ballistic vest bearing yellow lettering “State Agent” on the front and back of the vest.  

Troopers assisted in the apprehension of the male subject and while handcuffing the subject, Lozier approached and tased him with a X26 taser. 

Further investigation revealed that Lozier was not a law enforcement officer and was employed as a security guard working the front door of a Bourbon Street bar. 

Lozier turned himself into Troopers. 

He was booked into the Orleans Parish Justice Center.
