    Manassas Teen Impersonating Officer Tries to Pull Over Real Officer, Police Say

    An 18-year-old with blue flashing lights mounted in a car tried to pull over a driver -- who turned out to be a real police officer, Prince William County police say.

    An off-duty police officer was traveling along Sudley Manor Drive early Sunday morning when a driver behind him in a blue Pontiac G6 flicked on blue flashing lights, police said Monday afternoon.

    The officer thought the car was suspicious, so instead of pulling over, he called police and reported the car's license plate number.

    Officers tracked the car and pulled over the driver at Sudley Manor Drive and Bethlehem Road in Manassas at 12:30 a.m. Sunday.

    Joshua Robert Rosene, 18, of Manassas, was arrested and charged with impersonating a police officer.

    Information on whether Rosene had flashed police lights at other drivers wasn't provided.
