You can't put a price on this type of cosmic irony.
Today at approximately 3:15 p.m., Brighton Police Officers were dispatched to the report of a police impersonator on I-76 between Bridge St. and Bromley Ln. The below pictured vehicle initially attempted to stop an off-duty law enforcement officer driving their personal car by activating red and blue lights. Moments later, the vehicle started brake checking the off-duty officer and forced him to the side of the road. The suspect, wearing a "security" shirt, exited his vehicle and approached the officer while displaying a silver badge in his hand. The suspect was arrested on scene and booked into the Adams County Jail on charges including Impersonating a Peace Officer.
Yes, the fake cop actually brake-checked the real cop to get him to pull over and then hopped out with a "security" shirt on. 😂
A man doing his best to impersonate a cop slipped up in the most embarrassing way, when he decided to pull over a motorist who turned out to be a real cop.
It happened at 3:15 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 3, on Interstate 76 in Brighton, Colorado, northeast of Denver, according to the Brighton Police Department. ...
The mystery vehicle then pulled in front of the off-duty officer and forced him to the side of the road. "The suspect, wearing a ‘security' shirt, exited his vehicle and approached the officer while displaying a silver badge in his hand," officials said.
Details of their conversation were not revealed, but it ended with the suspect being arrested and taken to the Adams County Jail, officials said. "Charges including impersonating a peace officer," officials said.
Maybe we'll never know the "details of their conversation," but I would pay money to hear how that went. I'll bet the real cop gave that guy the reaming of his life.
Here's a bit of very useful information for anyone on the road, by the way:
"As a reminder, law enforcement vehicles come in many different sizes and shapes," Bright police officials said. "If you ever have a question about an unmarked vehicle pulling you over, please put your hazard (lights) on, continue at a safe speed, and call 9-1-1 to confirm the identity of the vehicle."
If you're unsure, don't take the risk — not every fake cop is as stupid as this one was.
