Man caught yelling 'White power' in LAPD shirt arrested for impersonating cop

Sheriff's deputies in West Hollywood arrested a man early Friday morning accused of impersonating a police officer.

Authorities say the deputies found 36-year-old Daniel Sohn sleeping in a car in the parking lot of a business in the 1200 block of North La Brea Avenue.

"Deputies approached the vehicle to investigate (because) overnight parking is prohibited on that business property," said a statement from the LA County Sheriff's Department.

Authorities say the deputies noticed Sohn was wearing a long-sleeve shirt with an LAPD logo on the front and patches on the sleeves.

One of the deputies reportedly recognized the man as the person in a video posted on social media outside a West Hollywood 24-Hour Fitness yelling "White power" to a group of demonstrators.

During questioning, the deputies realized Sohn was not a police officer with any law enforcement agency and was arrested for impersonating a police officer, according to authorities.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to call the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office at 310-855-8850.
