SALISBURY, Md. - A Delmar man has been arrested, after he apparently posed as a police officer at a local baseball stadium.

On Saturday, a Deputy with the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office says they were called to Perdue Stadium, on Hobbs Road in Salisbury, to handle a disturbance. According to the report, a man, later identified as 20-year-old Cody Holland, was at the game telling people he was an undercover Police Officer, and that everyone needed to sit down before the fireworks could start.

After the fireworks, Police say Holland followed a game attendee and his daughter out to their vehicle in the parking lot, and started making accusations that the two were using illicit drugs, before identifying himself as a Maryland State Trooper. Holland apparently then went on to question the man's sobriety before he reportedly put him through a slew of field sobriety tests. Police say Holland then made the man and his daughter is on the curb, after a pat down of the father, while he searched their vehicle for drugs.

According to Police, at this point in the incident, staff from the Delmarva Shorebirds approached, and Holland attempted to run away, and tossed a Delaware Department of Corrections badge. Witnesses reportedly told officials that Holland was showing the badge, and identifying himself as a law enforcement officer.

Police say they determined that Holland is not a law enforcement officer in any jurisdiction, and he was under the influence of alcohol at the scene. During Holland's arrest, he apparently became uncooperative with the arresting deputy, by being verbally abusive, and making the Deputy have to carry him to the patrol car.

Holland was charged with personate a law enforcement officer, assault, disorderly conduct, resist arrest, and unlawful imprisonment. He is being held on a $10,000 bond.
