The guy probably doesn't even realize the officer was baiting him, gaining information about his whereabouts and such while messing with him on the phone.

A woman named Ms. Sandovol called Benton County, saying she'd received a call over the weekend from a "Sgt. Kendall Brown" of the Sheriff's Department. She said the "Sgt." told her there was a warrant for her arrest.

Rather than provide any information, she turned everything over to officials. A 'real' Deputy, Officer Tucker, then responded to the scammer by calling him back. What ensued was rather hilarious. The scammer attempted to tell Deputy Tucker he was under arrest for impersonating an officer and wanted his supervisor's name. After Tucker refused to provide the information, the man hung up.

Deputy Tucker called back and then turned the tables, telling the scammer this time he WAS indeed the supervisor, and if he wanted proof, he could meet him in person. The man hung up again. There's no Sgt. Kendall Brown that works for the department, and the intended victim did the right thing by not providing any information. Last we heard, no more calls from Mr. Scammer.

Law enforcement officials say you will never receive a phone call about an outstanding warrant if there is one for you, or other such information. Honestly, if you ARE on the lam from cops, they will just find you and arrest you 'by surprise.'
