JOHNSON COUNTY, Ind. -- A man who pleaded guilty to impersonating a police officer owes thousands of dollars in back child support, records show.

Jamar Weathersbe is considered one of Johnson County’s “Most Wanted.”

He failed to show up for a February 23 court hearing on a child support matter and currently owes $12,738.34 in child support arrears, according to the Johnson County Prosecutor’s Office.

Johnson County takes a proactive approach to finding deadbeat parents , including posting their photos on social media.

Jamar Weathersbe also has an active arrest warrant out of Morgan County after he admitted to impersonating a police officer but failed to show up for his February 20 sentencing hearing.

Weathersbe pleaded guilty in October to impersonating a public servant, a felony. His attorney Nathan Vining declined to comment on where his client is or why he failed to appear.

Morgan County Prosecutor Steve Sonnega told Call 6 Investigates once Weathersbe is re-arrested, he should be held in jail until his sentencing.

According to the plea agreement, Weathersbe will likely serve a year and a half of probation as well as home detention.

A woman was driving on I-70 near a rest area last March when a red Charger came up behind her and activated red and clear visor lights and what sounded like an air horn, according to the probable cause affidavit.

The woman did not feel safe stopping and eventually pulled into a neighborhood where she said Weathersbe showed a badge and shouted “I am a (expletive) cop and I have a camera that recorded everything,” according to court documents.

The female driver called Monrovia Police who responded and located the red Charger at Weathersbe’s Monrovia home.

When police asked to see Weathersbe’s badge, the suspect showed it to officers, and said it was issued by the state of Pennsylvania for being a bounty hunter.
