Police: Fake cop pulled over real cop

TAMPA (FOX 13) -
A Manatee County man has been charged with impersonating a police officer.

Police say Jonathan Stevens was arrested in Tampa last night after flagging down a police officer. He had flashing red and blue lights on his SUV, and had a gun and a badge around his neck.

Investigators say he told the officer he was with Homeland Security and wanted to report a reckless driver.

I am having a hard time...

I am having a hard time deciding if I would feel safer being pulled over by the real cop or the fake one. What would you say?


Fake please

...or Mexican. The former screws with you for some queer power trip, the latter just wants money (like a respectable gent), whereas real cops might kidnap you to the local hospital and "search" your orifices (to put it politely).

Yea, I can't think of anyone more dangerous in daily life than a real USA cop.

We have too many departments.

That tells everyone we should probably axe Homeland Insecurity.

Follow "Florida Man" on Twitter for a regular supply of these bizarre FL stories. Only explanation I can think of is that FL is the OxyContin capital of the country.

posts equally bizarre stories of Florida women :-)
