A motorist posing as a police officer picked the wrong vehicle to pull over Sunday morning in Ann Arbor - an unmarked car containing two real police officers.
Ann Arbor police said the 24-year-old Shelby Township man is now facing a charge of impersonating a police officer.
The two uniformed officers were on patrol on Packard Street when they had to stop their unmarked car abruptly as a vehicle sped through the Arch Street intersection at about 2:40 a.m., reports said.
The officers followed and intended to stop the vehicle when they saw a white SUV with flashing police lights on the front grill approaching fast in the rear-view mirror. They said they also heard a loud siren and pulled over because they thought it was a marked patrol car pursuing the other vehicle.
Instead, the SUV pulled alongside them and the driver began shouting for them to drive more carefully while he chided them for nearly hitting his friends in the other vehicle. He then swore upon realizing he was yelling at uniformed police officers, reports said.
Officers arrested the driver and confiscated the lights and sirens from his vehicle. He was released pending a court date on the misdemeanor charge.
He did not explain why he had the equipment and remarked the incident was the dumbest thing he'd ever done, reports said.
