Hudson, Florida -- A man claiming he worked for the Department of Defense was arrested after he pulled over a car with an Ontario license plate while seeking out terrorists.

According to the arrest report, around 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, 73-year-old Joseph Tarochione pulled the car over in the Calendar Girls Strip Club parking lot on U.S. 19 and told the driver he would not let him go, because he wanted to have the car checked for bombs.

Tarochione then called 911 and told the operator he worked for a Department of Defense special forces unit and his name was classified, but he needed a deputy to search a car for bombs.

When the deputy arrived, Tarochione told him he had been assigned to seek out terrorists and the driver he pulled over must be one, because he had foreign license plates.

The deputy found a .22 magnum handgun on Tarochione, as well as a .22 caliber long rifle revolver along with a 16-gauge shotgun and lots of ammunition in Tarochione's vehicle.

Tarochione was arrested for impersonating a law enforcement officer and was taken to Land O'Lakes Jail.
