NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Tennessee man has pleaded guilty to impersonating a deputy U.S. marshal.

U.S. Attorney Don Cochran's office says 50-year-old Tooraj Sohrabi Sedeh of Franklin pleaded guilty Friday to impersonation and false statement charges.

Prosecutors say a deputy U.S. marshal in November saw Sedeh leaving Home Depot in Nashville wearing a U.S. Marshals Service shirt, a badge holder with a U.S. Marshals patch and a holstered gun and handcuffs on his hip.

Prosecutors say Sedeh lied by telling the deputy he worked for the U.S. Marshals Service in Nashville, then by saying he was a Williamson County sheriff worker and a freelance bail bondsman.

Prosecutors say authorities found more U.S. marshal and other law enforcement items in Sedeh's car and home. They say he impersonated a deputy U.S. marshal other times.
