He allegedly impersonated an officer on Jan. 14, Jan. 27 and Feb. 3, police said. A police spokesperson was unable to provide more details about the incident.

Richardson was arrested Wednesday in Lisle after he was identified as someone who impersonated a CPD sergeant in the 2300 block of West Jackson Boulevard, police said.

He is due in court Friday.
