Fake Policeman feels the long arm of the law

Last week a man from Lincoln, admitted impersonating an officer and stopping motorists by using a blue flashing light on the dashboard of his Saab 93.

The 22 year old had repeatedly stopped motorists he thought were driving badly or breaking the speed limit.

Lincoln Magistrates Court fined him £835, plus £85 in costs.

PC Robert McGhee, of Lincolnshire Police, said, "Impersonating an officer carries hefty penalties for good reason."

He said police officers were highly trained, had a thorough knowledge of the law and were used to dealing with many different situations.
