A man accused of impersonating a police officer is accused of signaling a real officer to pull over on a road in St. Johns County earlier this week.

Authorities say 20-year-old Matthew Michael Lee McMahon activated a red and blue light Monday while driving behind an unmarked county sheriff's car. Detective Chance Anderson pulled over and was shocked to see an unknown face behind the wheel of the other car, reports WESH TV.

This is such a catch 22. The guy gets what he deserves by pulling over a real officer, but just think if it had been a lone female or male citizen not aware of who this guy was. He is an idiot but a dangerous idiot I guarantee.

Captain @ 6/9/2014 6:42 AM
