Two teenagers were arrested Saturday night for allegedly impersonating police officers, the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s office said in a release.

Actual deputies were called to a party at a home near Manteca Road and Sedan Avenue around 10:30 p.m. after the two were reported.

Once at the party, one of the teens – 18-year-old Kyle Clogston of Manteca – allegedly told sheriff’s deputies that he was a police officer. Deputies found that both Clogston and 19-year-old Lodi resident Marcus Bradford were dressed in tactical-style gear and armed with airsoft rifles and pistols with the orange tips painted black. Bradford was also said to have an imitation badge on his chest.

Eventually, both teens allegedly confessed to deputies that they had impersonated police officers in order to break up the party.

Both were arrested and booked at San Joaquin County Jail for impersonating an officer, impersonating an officer’s badge and possession of an imitation firearm.
