SLIDELL - Police in Louisiana say a Mississippi man claimed to be a "sovereign citizen" who's immune from arrest during a traffic stop.

Slidell officers on Friday charged 54-year-old James Doyle Webb of Bay St. Louis with several violations, including not having a driver's license, a license plate or insurance. He was also charged with resisting an officer.

It was not immediately clear Saturday whether Webb is represented by an attorney.

A news release from the Slidell Police Department says Webb requested the names and badge numbers of officers who stopped him, then would not produce documents officers requested after he wrote down their information. The release says he was arrested after officers thought he was reaching for a gun.

Instead of a license, he had a homemade "Constitutional Protection Travel Identification."
