A man using a fake siren pulled over a real cop in an off-duty vehicle.
On New Year’s Day, an off-duty sergeant in Visalia, California was driving his personal vehicle.
He saw a flashing siren behind him and the driver of the vehicle with the flashing lights signaled for the sergeant to pull over, reported the Fresno Bee.
The sergeant didn’t pull over though, noticing something wrong with the vehicle. He kept driving toward downtown Visalia and called dispatch for patrol vehicles to pull over the impersonator.
“The Visalia Police Department would like to remind the public of these types of events and, when possible, stop in well-lit populated areas and request identification from law enforcement officials,” Sgt. Damon Maurice told the Visalia Times-Delta.
Brandon Freeman, 29, was arrested and charged with impersonating an officer and other charges. His passenger, 30-year-old Martin Morales, was arrested and booked into jail on several outstanding felony warrants.
