AURORA, Colo. - A serial police impersonator convicted of harassing an Aurora woman last year was sentenced Friday.

Antonio Arbogast, 23, will be spending the next two months in jail and two years on probation. An Adams County judge also ordered Arbogast to undergo a mental health evaluation and treatment.

Arbogatt was arrested following an incident on May 18, 2015. A woman called 911 and said Arbogast was trying to pull her car over near East Montview Boulevard and North Dallas Street. 

She said he was following her in an older model Subaru Legacy with a flashing strobe light mounted on the car's dashboard and amber flashing lights on the Subaru's rear deck.

The woman stayed on the phone with the 911 operator for several minutes as Arbogatt’s vehicle kept following her, police said. Aurora police officers quickly responded and stopped the woman's vehicle and arrested Arbogatt.

Arbogast was armed with a handgun and wearing a gray security uniform.

Two months later, he was arrested on July 19 by Denver police and again accused of impersonating a police officer on the 16th Street Mall.
