Impersonating a Police Officer
– On January 29th
at 12:58AM, officers responded to investigate a suspicious vehicle which was reportedly last seen in the area of Cliffview Dr and Waterway Dr in Dumfries (22025). The caller, an off-duty police officer, reported to police that he was driving on Benita Fitzgerald Dr when he observed a white Crown Victoria following him. While the vehicle was behind the caller, the driver turned on a spotlight which was affixed to the vehicle. The caller believed the other vehicle was a police officer and promptly pulled over. The driver of the Crown Victoria never exited the vehicle but instead, pulled alongside the caller and attempted to make contact. At the point, the caller identified himself as an actual police officer which caused the other driver to immediately speed away. The caller was able to provide police with a tag number and followed the vehicle to the area above where the driver and a passenger fled on foot. During the investigation, officers were able to identify the driver as the accused and obtained a warrant for his arrest. The accused turned himself into police later that same day without incident.
