A man in North Kingsville, Ohio was charged with impersonating an officer when he tried to stop a real officer in traffic. The fake cop was in a black sports vehicle that was fitted with red and blue emergency-style lights when he stopped a Youngstown officer who was off-duty at that time. The impersonator was in civilian and unarmed and tried to convince the officer that he was a real police officer.

Realizing that the Youngstown officer could not heed to his demands, he eventually drove away. The Youngstown officer reported the incidence to the village police who tracked down the fake cop. He was prosecuted and charged of impersonation of a policeman.
