LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - 37-year-old Cody Allen Stockman was indicted by a grand Jury on Tuesday, January 15 on the charge of impersonating a public servant.

On December 23rd of 2018, Police got a radio call about a vehicle with red and blue dashboard lights attempting to pull over other vehicles on the south Loop.

Officers later found a truck matching Stockman’s description at a gas station near I-27 and 82nd Street. When asked about the incident by an officer, Stockman attributed the actions to road rage.

According to the Police incident report, Stockman was driving on the Loop in the left lane when another vehicle drove up behind him moving fast. Stockman slowed and moved to the right lane when the other vehicle passed him and entered his lane, and that’s when Stockman says the other vehicle nearly missed hitting the front of Stockman’s pickup truck.

Stockman then turned on a set of red and blue dashboard lights he recently installed, and attempted to pull over the other vehicle. The other driver saw the lights behind him, but didn’t believe the truck to be a Police vehicle so he marked down the license plate number and called Police.

When officers asked Stockman about the lights, he said he was just “being stupid.”

Stockman is currently held on $4,000 bond.
