A 31-year-old man posed as a police officer, using a car equipped with emergency lights to pull over a motorist, Anne Arundel County police said.
Jonathan Conner was driving a Chevrolet Caprice equipped with emergency lights and an antenna to make it resemble a police cruiser when he pulled over a man Tuesday evening, police said.
Conner told the driver he had pulled him over for speeding, but police said the man became suspicious because Conner wasn't wearing a uniform and didn't have a badge or credentials. He drove away and called police.
Conner is charged with impersonating a police officer and false imprisonment, as well as multiple traffic offenses.
