Anderson woman accused of posing as a police officer

Lisa Garrison

ANDERSON, S.C. — An Anderson woman was sent to jail after officers say she posed as a policewoman and harassed a motorist outside of an airport during an air show.

The Anderson Independent-Mail reports 52-year-old Lisa Rizk Garrison was arrested Wednesday. Anderson county Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Lt. Sheila Cole says following a possible road-rage incident, Garrison made a motorist pull over near the intersection of S.C. 24. She identified herself as an Anderson County officer and indicated that she had backup on the way.

Cole says the complainant videotaped the incident with her cellphone and contacted a deputy working at the air show. She said deputies looked at the video and took Garrison into custody.

It is unclear if Garrison has a lawyer.
