PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Police anticipate more charges against a National Guard soldier who allegedly posed as a Eugene police officer for at least a year, making traffic stops and volunteering at a youth center.

Eugene police worry about what Daniel Alloway could have done as he cleared traffic with emergency lights mounted on his blue SUV and wore the uniforms of both local police and the Federal Protective Services.

Police arrested Alloway on Thursday afternoon. His arraignment was scheduled for Friday.

For more than one year, police say Alloway pulled over motorists and posed as a police officer. He had a badge, gun, Taser and pepper spray.

He is also a member of the Oregon Army National Guard who served three tours in Iraq, where he received service awards for each deployment.
