A high school honors student in Pennsylvania has been arrested on accusations that he is actually a 23-year-old man posing as a teenager.

Police say he pretended to be Harrisburg High School student Asher Potts, who had a 4.16 grade-point average and was in the National Honor Society. Samarin was actively involved at the school, working with a student advisory group on a food bank, and a member of the school's ROTC and Naval Sea Cadet programs.

Police say he had a Pennsylvania driver's license in Potts' name when he was arrested.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Samarin, who remained in the Dauphin County jail Thursday on charges including identity theft and tampering with public records.
