    Police impersonator arrested after interrupting prostitution sting in Detroit


    By ERIC D. LAWRENCE
    FREE PRESS STAFF WRITER

    A man impersonating a Detroit police officer interrupted a prostitution sting being conducted by the Wayne County Sheriff's Office on the city's east side today.

    The 51-year-old Detroit man flashed a badge and told an undercover detective to get off the street while she was talking to a potential customer in the area of Vernor and Oakdale about 5 p.m., according to the Wayne County Sheriff's Office. After the customer ran away, the man, who was driving a red pickup, began following the detective, shouting that he was an officer.

    When the detective replied that she was also an officer, the man sped off, and he was stopped a short distance away.

    Despite denying that he was carrying a badge, a search of the man's truck uncovered a loaded .40-caliber gun, a Detroit Police Department badge and clothing with a police department logos, the sheriff's office said.

    The man, who faces one count of impersonating an officer and possibly other charges, is in jail in Hamtramck pending arraignment.

    “This is a very bizarre situation that could have become deadly,” said Sheriff Benny Napoleon in a statement. “This guy was so bold as to interrupt officers conducting a sting. … Who knows what other crimes he would commit in the future had our team not taken him down?”

    sounds like a guy that I used to attend school with. He was a hardcore badge and patch collector, he always hounded me to see if I could score him some county patches or a wallet badge. Yes he also had a full decked out whacker mobile

    We got one of those around here. I'll grab a pic next time I see him. You'd SWEAR it was a slick top if you didn't know better. (wrong color for the city and the amber lights are a big clue) it's got a push bar, radar, lights all over. The guy could do a stop in a heartbeat with it. Scary... Last time I saw one that decked out the guy was testing his wig-wags at the car wash. He had an officer safety caution against him. No surprise I'm sure but...

    Shouldn't this be "alleged potential customer"?

    I got a pic of a whacker mobile... all black CVPI decked out with a license plate that says, "IM1OFUS". What the hell does that mean?

    I am one of us? What's us? Whacker? Nerd? Lunch money victim?

    US?

    Undercover Squad - Interpol.

    On that note, I am going to have to start carrying my digital camera again. There is a late model black Dodge Charger running solid red lights on the front, as it blasts ghetto tunes running down the road at speed. It has some obligatory antennas on it, but it looks more like the Return of the Mod Squad than a real unit.

    We sell our used up CVPI to taxi companies but some end up as personally owned vehicles. We take all the crap off them but nothing prevents some tool with a credit card and some electrical wiring knowledge to 'restoring' his sled. We had clown set his up with every light and antenna known to man and even cut the door guards to look like it was a marked unit that was repainted as a plain clothes car. The Spinners were the crowning touch though. Looked "boss"
