MEMPHIS, TN (abc24.com) - A Memphis man accused of posing as a U.S. Marshal's deputy to get out of a traffic ticket was arrested Monday by the real U.S. Marshals.

Averick Nickson was arrested at his Memphis home after he was indicted by a federal grand jury for impersonating a U.S. Marshal. Investigators say in one instance, Nickson claimed to be a deputy to avoid getting a speeding ticket.

During a search of Nickson's home, U.S. Marshals found police equipment such as guns, tactical vests, badges and ID cards, and radios. Nickson's car was also equipped with emergency lights.

Nickson, a former employee with the Dresden, Tennessee Police Department and the Weakly County Sheriff's Office, was taken into custody without incident.
