Samuel Mallard  

COBB COUNTY, Ga. — A teen accused of impersonating a law enforcement official earlier this summer has been arrested again for allegedly doing the same thing again.

Police say Mallard likely had a fake gun but had a real -- but unauthorized -- Cobb County police vest he likely got through a family member who did some work for Cobb police as a vendor.

Investigators said on Sunday, Mallard knocked on a family's door and told them he was a U.S. Marshal.

"He had everything that would make him appear to somebody who wasn't in the job that he was a police officer of law enforcement," said Cobb County Police Department spokesperson Sarah O'Hara.
