Court documents say Hall allegedly told troopers upon their arrival that she was “head of the state police” before being placed under arrest on an active warrant from another case. Court documents say that as she was being escorted to a waiting police car, she “looked in the direction of her neighbors” and threatened she was “going to place them under arrest,” before becoming belligerent and causing a disturbance.

Hall was charged with a felony count of impersonating a peace officer. According to court documents, she was released from jail Monday morning after posting a $1,000 partially-secured bond and she will be arraigned in July.
