PHOENIX -- An Arizona man is facing charges after police said he left his 2-year-old son alone to look for his wife while armed.
KNXV-TV reports that Kaleb Gage Pence was arrested this week in Phoenix following a relative finding the boy alone.
According to police, the 21-year-old Pence was spotted riding his motorcycle around an apartment complex and wearing a sidearm and carrying a riffle.
Police say Pence told apartment officials he was undercover and showed a badge that said "officer."
Pence's 2-year-old son was later found home alone by Pence's grandfather.
Pence was taken into custody and faces charges of impersonating a peace officer and child abuse.
It was not known if he had an attorney.
