ALEXANDRIA — Authorities said a Shreveport man reported to be loitering on East Texas Avenue in Alexandria claimed to be a federal marshal working undercover, but was not.

Quatavrius Thomas, 20, was arrested by Alexandria police Tuesday and booked with impersonation of a police officer, criminal trespassing and resisting an officer.

Police said Thomas refused to produce any identification, so officers checked with the U.S. Marshal Service and discovered Thomas was not a marshal.

Thomas was booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center.
