Flint — A Flint-area man who authorities say stopped cars while pretending to be a Secret Service agent faces possible prison time after pleading guilty in the case.

The Flint Journal reports 20-year-old Aaron Justin Browning on Tuesday entered the plea in U.S. District Court to impersonating an officer. Sentencing is scheduled for May 19.

Under sentencing guidelines, Browning could spend up to six months in federal custody.

Authorities say Browning used a business card during the stops that was left behind by a Secret Service agent at an automotive detailing shop where he worked. Browning’s plea agreement says he didn’t get anything from the drivers or conduct any searches.
