A registered sex offender faces charges after police said he impersonated a state police trooper at Lowe’s on Wednesday.

Eric Doody, 38, of 419 Columbus Blvd., New Britain, was arrested on Tuesday and charged with impersonating an officer and breach of peace.

When police checked the license plate number for Doody’s car they found he is a registered sex offender and monitored person, the report said. Doody told police he had a confrontation with another driver because the other driver was on his cellphone and almost rear-ended his vehicle, the report said. Doody said he wanted to “strike fear” into the other driver and said he worked for the state multiple times, the report said. Doody said he had the radio because he is an amateur HAM radio operator and has access to state radio frequencies.
