A Maryland man who impersonated a police officer is in jail after activating his siren behind an unmarked police cruiser.
According to Montgomery County Police, a detective was on the road when he noticed a Crown Victoria that looked like an unmarked police interceptor.
As the detective noticed the Crown Victoria pull behind him, the mystery cruiser activated its siren, then changed lanes and sped past the detective, prompting the officer to give chase.
Upon pulling over the Crown Victoria, it was discovered that 51-year-old driver John Vincent Angelini of Baltimore was not a real police officer, even if his vehicle was surprisingly convincing.
“On the exterior of the car, the detective observed red and blue grill lights, a push bumper, and multiple antennas. The detective also observed that the interior of the vehicle replicated a police car and contained items that included a center console with radio microphone, emergency lights and switches, a camera affixed to the windshield, siren, Stop Sticks, and flex cuffs,” Montgomery County Police stated in a press release.
According to WJLA, Angelini was subsequently arrested following the discovery. Authorities are asking that all who encountered Angelini impersonating an officer to call 240-773-6370.
