Police Impersonator Causes Confusion Among Cops

Usually, police impersonators are pretty easy to pick out, especially once you see their vehicle up close. However, this guy had such an elaborate, convincing setup that he fooled the real police after intentionally getting them involved in his pulling over a citizen’s vehicle.

See the original news report on this incident.

This alleged police impersonator has some real guts. After he flags down one real police officer for assistance and more join the scene, he tells them the apparently innocent motorist he pulled over is wanted for “Fugitive Apprehension and Bail.”


At first police are confused by the strange terminology. But the convincing nature of the guy’s cruiser stops them from automatically concluding he’s impersonating an officer.

The suspect apparently doubles down on the lie, telling police on scene he’s part of the “Federal Apprehension Program.” It’s like the guy’s just making up whatever on the spot instead of saying he’s a US Marshal or something most cops would know something about.
