NORTH RICHLAND HILLS, Texas (AP) - The father of a North Texas teenager who killed four people in a drunken-driving wreck has been arrested for impersonating an officer.
North Richland Hills police say Frederick Anthony Couch is facing charges following an early-morning disturbance July 28. He was taken into custody Tuesday and later released after posting $2,500 bail.
Police say Couch showed a badge and identified himself as a reserve officer in Lakeside, northwest of Fort Worth. Investigators later determined he's not a licensed officer in Texas.
He's the father of Ethan Couch, who was given 10 years' probation for the deadly wreck last year.
