Police in Idaho arrested 20-year-old driver Alexander A. Welch on charges of impersonating a police officer after the suspect allegedly pulled over another motorist on Saturday using a cell phone app with flashing red and blue lights.
Law enforcement officials in Boise received a call from a worried driver who was concerned after being pulled over by a car with flashing lights that didn't look -- or behave -- like a police vehicle, according to the Idaho Statesman.
After switching on the red and blue lights and coming to a stop behind the motorist at around 9:30 p.m., the suspect allegedly drove off.
The concerned driver followed the fake cop and tipped off police, who eventually located both vehicles.
The suspect has been booked into Ada County Jail on a felony charge of unlawful exercise of the function of peace officers.
Welch is the latest in a long line of suspects accused of poorly impersonating police officers.
Earlier this year, cops in Florida arrested a man accused of trying to pull over cars while waving an enormous fork. Last year, a resident of the Sunshine State was cuffed on suspicion of attempting to stop motorists for drunken driving -- while he was allegedly driving drunk.
