Sevier County authorities say to watch out for a man trying to scam people by impersonating law enforcement.

The sheriff's department says a man is posing as a police officer and is calling people, telling them they have a warrant for failing to show up for jury duty and that if they don't pay a $500 fine, they'll be arrested.

This is a scam -- if you get a phone call, contact the Sevier County Sheriff's Department at 453-4668.
