NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A 22-year-old man was arrested after turning himself in for impersonating a police officer during a confrontation with a teenage boy.

Officials said Pishoy Shehata waited in his vehicle outside the home of a 17-year-old male Tuesday to confront the teen about an issue involving one of Shehata's relatives.

When the teen arrived home, police said Shehata told him he wanted to talk and persuaded him to get into the vehicle.

The teen told police when he tried to leave Shehata handcuffed him, showed him a gold badge and said he was a police officer. Shehata then allegedly took the teen's keys and cell phone.

The victim was somehow able to escape and flee the scene. Shehata then apparently drove off.

Neighbors in the area said they witnessed the whole incident.

"What we seen basically was the guy hanging out the window getting ready to jump out," said neighbor Richard Roper. "He then ran up the hill, and he was screaming hysterically."

Investigators said Shehata voluntarily turned himself in to officers at the Metro Nashville Police Department's Hermitage Precinct and admitted to the incident.

Shehata was charged with aggravated robbery, kidnapping and impersonating a police officer. He was booked into jail and held on $55,000 bond.
