GALLOWAY TWP., N.J. -- A New Jersey man has been arrested for allegedly impersonating a soldier on Veterans Day.

He was found dressed in a military uniform in the area of a base near Pomona Road and Atlantic Avenue on Wednesday.

Patrolman Gary Brenner from Galloway Township Police says he recognized Porter as a man who had prior contact with police.

"It was the same exact uniform that active military reserve would be wearing.

Department of Corrections records show Porter has served time for eluding police, theft and illegal possession of a weapon among other crimes.
