Kissimmee, FL – A Kissimmee man was arrested on charges of posing as a police officer and using a gun to threaten drivers speeding through his neighborhood, as reported by WKMG-TV.

Osceola County sheriff’s deputies charged 35-year-old Walter Diolosa with impersonating a police officer and carrying a concealed firearm.

The arrest came after police received a report on Saturday, June 19 about a confrontation along Wilderness Trail in Kissimmee. The caller said her brother-in-law was driving fast in the neighborhood when Diolosa approached him.

The witness reported Dilosa then pulled his shirt up and showed them a gun. Authorities claim that Dilosa told the victims, “I’m a cop and you guys can’t be speeding. Next time I’m going to write you a ticket.”

Dilosa admitted to the allegations that he showed his gun to try to deter the drivers from speeding.

Police discovered the weapon Dilosa was using was stolen from the Kissimee Police Department in 1994. Dilosa claimed he bought the firearm from a local flea market 16 years ago. He did not have a weapons permit for the gun.

Neighbors seemingly stood up for Dilosa, explaining that Dilosa received a lot of complaints about speeders when he served as the homeowner’s association president. They also explained that he recently lost his fiancé in a speed-related traffic accident.

Residents also stated that there are a large number of children in the neighborhood, and that “nobody slows down at all.”
