Man arrested for pulling over Cop

Postby sox 06 » Wed Jul 11, 2007 4:37 pm

Of all the people he could have pulled over :-b
BOHEMIA, N.Y. (AP) - There were flashing lights atop his SUV and what appeared to be a police badge in his hand. Unfortunately for the fake cop, the man he pulled over who was a real police detective.

Robert Lane, 25, was arrested Tuesday on charges of criminal impersonation and aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, Suffolk County police said.

Lane was driving an SUV fitted with flashing lights when he tried to stop the off-duty New York police detective on a highway on Long Island, Suffolk police said. They said Lane told investigators the detective had cut him off.

The detective got suspicious when Lane drove up alongside him, identified himself as an officer and flashed a small police badge, Suffolk police said.

The detective showed his own police ID and ordered Lane to pull over, then followed him when he didn't and called in local police to arrest him, authorities said.

Lane could not immediately be located for comment.

Why didnt he just get road rage and flip him off and scream curse words at him and maybe even cut him off back. At least then he wouldnt look like quite this much of a moron.

Sucks to be him. !+)

I've always dreamed about impersonating a police officer. You know - to pull over all the hot chicks and see which ones will give favors to get out of a ticket! :-)

I had a guy try to pull that with me once. I called it in and the State Patrol pulled him over later down the road.

Lots of people have badges - even schmucks like me. Do NOT pull over just because someone shows you a badge, even if they have flashing lights on their car.

I think if you have a reasonable doubt the law will be lenient with you if you don't pull over until a squad car shows up.

Some guy was arrested for impersonating an officer in the town right next to mine a few years back. He went around driving a white Chevy Caprice to pull people over and try to finagle a bribe. He eventually got caught because, like this story, pulled over an off-duty cop. This dude had even bought a cop uniform from some costume shop and had one of them searchlights installed into his Caprice.
The cake is a lie.

Rule of thumb

If the guy ain't sporting one of these...

...he most likely ain't a cop. :-b
