A police impersonator is behind bars after he tried using flashing blue lights to pass a driver who happened to be a real officer.
Alan Hulet was on his way to work at the East Point Police Dept. Saturday night, when the incident happened. When the driver passed him with blue strobe lights flashing, Hulet pulled over to the side of the road, but knew immediately ‘something was off’.
Coweta County Sheriff’s Lieutenant John Kennedy says the suspect, 21-year-old Deion Collier, was driving a 2008 black Ford Fusion. Hulet suspected that Collier’s car was not a legitimate police vehicle and began to follow him.
Collier pointed a gun towards him through the car window, when he realized he was being followed. Officer Hulet called 911. Collier pulled over at exit 56, and started to approach the officer’s vehicle with a firearm still in his hand, Kennedy said.
Hulet came out of his car with a gun and identified himself as a police officer. Collier, at that point, “submitted to his commands.”
Fox 5 reports that a loaded gun, bullets, and flashing strobe were recovered from Collier’s car. He’s now charged with impersonating a police officer and aggravated assault.
