Ewing Man Arrested for Impersonating Police Officer

williams,johnA Ewing man was arrested on Oct. 29 for allegedly impersonating a police officer.

John Williams, also known as Johnny Fields, was arrested by members of the Mercer County Sheriff’s Office Fugitive Unit. Williams, 60, was out on probation for a prior charge of impersonating a police officer.

During a routine search of his vehicle, probation officers allegedly found handcuff restraints, official Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office placards, New Jersey State Police work attire, and an empty police pistol holster. His black SUV with tinted windows was outfitted with custom police-type strobe lights in the front and rear, and a rear
windshield strobe, in addition to a working siren, police markings and decals on the exterior of his vehicle.

Williams was charged with illegal possession of personal restraints, receiving stolen property, and impersonating a police officer. His vehicle has been impounded. He is currently lodged at the Mercer County Correction Center on $20,000 bail.

Any member of the public who believes they have been approached or pulled over by Williams should contact Sheriff’s Detective Joseph Tuccillo at JTuccillo@MercerCounty.org or 609-989-6111. All calls are confidential.
