A 20-year-old Fort Wayne man thought it would be fun to use his phone app that flashed red and blue lights to pull over a car.


ou don’t have to be stupid to be a criminal, but it sure helps. Submitted for your approval, a 20-year-old Fort Wayne man who thought it would be fun to use his phone app that flashed red and blue lights to pull over a car. But the car he pulled over was no ordinary car.

The man flashed his pretend cop car lights at the car in front of him, and pulled up beside that car laughing, only to see the person in the car flash a Fort Wayne police badge at him. Whoops.

The man further proved his mental midgetry by trying to drive away, but the real police pursued him to a local bar. He led them on a short foot chase through the bar, but he was—you guessed it—apprehended.

The cop impersonator now faces a felony charge of impersonating a public servant and a misdemeanor charge of resisting arrest.

Looks like he’ll be going from playing pretend cop to playing actual prisoner.
