Police impersonator pulls woman over in Anne Arundel

September 03, 2004

A man impersonating a police officer pulled a woman over early Wednesday, Anne Arundel County police said yesterday.

The Glen Burnie woman was driving on Veterans Highway about 3:20 a.m. when a white car -- possibly a Ford Taurus or a Dodge Intrepid -- appeared behind her and displayed a flashing blue light, said police spokesman Lt. Joseph E. Jordan.

The woman pulled her car onto the shoulder, followed by the man driving the white car. He got out of his car and approached her vehicle, Jordan said. The man told the woman that she needed to get into his car so that he could ask her some questions, but he was not in uniform, so the woman asked to see the man's police badge, Jordan said.

When the man refused to produce identification, the woman drove away. She pulled into the parking lot of a nearby convenience store, where she reported the incident to a county officer stopped at that location, Jordan said.
