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.
Cobb County police say they have arrested Mallard six times since he was 11-years-old.
Police said they're planning to find a new way to help the teenager.
