Kentucky man impersonating cop
pulls over real officer
An alleged police impersonator is facing serious charges after police say he tried to pull someone over, only to learn that the person was a real police officer.
According to an arrest warrant, it happened last Saturday, notes WDRB and other media outlets.
Police say a Louisville Metro Police Department officer and his wife were traveling in their personal vehicle on Hurstbourne Lane in that city, when a car began driving toward them, flashing lights. That car was driven by 24-year-old Brandon Hurley, according to the warrant.
When the officer passed Hurley up, Hurley allegedly responded by doing a u-turn, getting behind the officer, flashing his lights and honking his horn.
At that point, the officer assumed Hurley needed help and pulled over.
Police say Hurley then got out of his car and walked up to the officer's car as if he was pulling the officer over. He allegedly asked he officer, "Did you know you hit a curb back there?"
When the officer told Hurley he did not hit a curb, Hurley responded by asking the officer if he knew how fast he had been driving, according to the arrest report. The officer replied that he wanted to know what police department Hurley worked for. Hurley said he worked for "Jefferson County."
When the officer asked to see his badge, Hurley allegedly told him that he didn't have one because he was "off-duty."
At that point the officer identified himself as an officer with the Louisville Metro Police Department.
