Man Impersonates Cop, Pulls Over Real Officer
Police Find Stolen Radio, Other Police Paraphernalia

POSTED: 7:12 pm EST January 5, 2005

CLEVELAND -- A Parma man is facing charges after he impersonated a police officer, and is caught by a real police officer he tried to pull over.

Micahel Gustafson, 50, faces a five-count grand jury indictment stemming from the Dec. 17 incident.

According to police, Gustafson put a blinking blue police light on his dashboard at around 2:30 a.m. He then shined a high-beam flashlight at a woman in a car at the intersection of East 110th Street and St. Clair, in Cleveland.

Gustafson reportedly told the woman he was a police officer, and that he stopped her for driving erratically.

However, the woman turned out to be a Cleveland police detective, and she quickly called for backup.

Police found Gustafson was carrying a gun and had a stolen police radio in his car. A search of his home also revealed more police and law enforcement paraphernalia.

Gustafson faces five counts, including impersonating a police officer and carrying a concealed weapon.
