Police in Florida say they arrested a man on suspicion of driving drunk while impersonating a police officer on Oct. 14.
According to the Sun-Sentinel.com, police in Boca Raton believe Andrew Novotak was dressed like a cop with a police-style badge and a loaded Glock 9 mm handgun in a waist holster when he pulled over several motorists to ask if they had drugs or alcohol in their cars.
"The phony cop was driving a white Ford Crown Victoria with dark tinted windows, similar to what police officers drive nationwide," police spokesman Mark Economou told the press.
But unlike real police officers, the flashing lights on Novotak's vehicle were green -- not red and blue, according to CBS4.
A motorist notified authorities, and when police arrived on the scene they reportedly found Novotak in his car, with his green lights flashing.
The 60-year-old suspect allegedly told cops he was a private investigator with a police-trained dog in the back of his vehicle, and that he had been in a traffic accident after another motorist cut him off.
But police say they noticed a strong scent of alcohol coming off of Novotak, and placed him under arrest on charges of impersonating law enforcement and driving under the influence.
