Police: Man posed as officer to get into Mavs-Rockets game

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Houston police say a man posed as an officer to try to get into Toyota Center to see Tuesday night's Mavs-Rockets game.

James Thomas Pierce, 57, is charged with impersonating a public servant. According to police, he showed a badge to a security guard and said he was an officer who had been outside to take a phone call.

The security guard called a uniformed officer. Pierce later reportedly admitted he wasn't an officer.

He's currently out on $10,000 bond.
