USA Today reports:
A Florida man was arrested for allegedly impersonating a police officer after he tried to pull over a driver who was a real detective. According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, Matthew Joseph Erris, 26, activated red and blue lights on the grill of his 2007 SUV on April 17 to pull over a vehicle.
Erris didn’t know the driver of the car was an undercover detective with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office. After searching his vehicle, the deputy found a realistic-looking airsoft pistol in a holster and law enforcement light bar installed on his SUV, according to the sheriff’s office.
