Man Masquerading as Cop Pulls Over Real Officer
January 20, 2005
An Ohio man is facing five charges after being caught by a real cop for impersonating a police officer.
Michael Gustafson, 50, of Parma, Ohio, reportedly turned on a siren and a blinking blue police light on his dashboard to pull over a woman motorist who he said was driving erratically. Although he wasn’t a police officer, it turns out the woman he pulled over and pointed a high-beam flashlight at was a detective with the Cleveland Police Department. She immediately called for backup.
Gustafson had a stolen police radio in his car. When police searched his home they found more law enforcement paraphernalia. Among the five counts against him are impersonating a police officer and carrying a concealed weapon.
