    At least the "speeding" driver was smart enough to not fall for it. I would have snapped his picture, though.

    "I'm Special Forces"

    Watching too many Chuck Norris movies

    A Honda civic lol

    Guy was an idiot
    At least buy a 2nd hand laser gun and walk up to the car with it

    Because he simply had a pocket knife on his belt

    In the south they would of charged him with Armed Kidnapping Attempted Armed Robbery
    Impersonating a Leo
    Those are good for 45 years 1st offense

    ROFL, A F'in Honda civic! White t shirt and jeans with red lettering. WHAT A DOUCHE! First of all all you have to be a moron to stop for a Honda. If I would have stopped, (which would never happen, and I don't care how many lights you have, call a big boy car or follow me to the police station) I would have been laughing so hard my eyes would have been watering. The only reason it's going to take a little while, not like 24 hours to catch this moron is because he was driving a Honda civic. They're like assholes and elbows, everybodys got'em.

    Holy crap. This story is filled with so much fail.

    So some drooling lobotomy victim actually believed that "I'm a soldier in the Canadian special forces who has been tasked with enforcing traffic law while wearing a t-shirt, a literal t-shirt, with "SPECIAL FORCES" written it" schtick would actually work.

    I suspect the shirt was at least partially truthful: this person is indeed quite "special".

    Exactly, when an unmarked Lexus tried to pull me over in Louisiana I just left him but next overpass there was a marked Tahoe waiting for me. Big surprise neither the officer in the Lexus or the Tahoe said anything about me taking off on him. They knew it was BS that's why they had a marked unit hanging around.

    What i get a kick out of with these stories i read.
    In some countries they will bend you over the table with crazy jail time and fines for things like having a radar detector.
    But then they'll take a "big offense" like this and give them a slap on the wrist. (relatively speaking)

    I just don't get that. Around here they'd throw every conceivable offense on this guy. I'm curious to see if he gets caught and what happens to him.

    While this idiot is most definitely a case of a police impersonator / LEO wannabe, in Pennsylvania, volunteer firefighters and ambulance crew are authorized to use blue lights in their personal vehicles when responding to calls. Some use a simple blue beacon light or mini LED lightbar, while some (the so-called "whackers") really go all out with full-sized lightbars, grille lights, and whatnot. This can be confusing to visitors who come from states where only cops use blue lights.

    I know when I moved to PA, I was confused as to why I was seeing so many cars with blue dashlights or teardrop lights on the roof of the car. I remember thinking "why are there so many cops here? And why do the patrol cars look like mom's minivan?"

    Not far off, I got pulled over by a swat member 2 years ago on a range road between Airdrie and Balzac. He was in a Nissan Maxima UC. Called in the complaint as a "fake cop". After a few day investigation, CPS called me and let me know what happened. It's rare, but it is possible.

    Probably 10 years ago now, some clown in a Crown Vic tried to 'pull me over', until he saw I was on my cell phone calling CHP, then he disappeared fast onto the first exit.

    This is a one up for me, also knowledge of the local towns and vehicles used, BUT, if I ever saw an unmarked in anything but a new charger/taurus around here, I'm not stopping. No towns have crown vics, anymore. All Police here, marked and unmarked all have MG plates. I'll never stop for anything less than that. I also have the dispatch direct numbers in my phone for mine and neighboring town.

    I was just thinking about the vehicles used...

    Seems like it could just about be anything around here. Trucks, SUVs, vans, Vics, chargers...
    And in the dark it's not likely I could tell the difference. Part of the reason I keep a 45 around.

    I had an old 69 Firebird Trans Am (yes, wish I still had it). The windows were limo tint back then and you could barely see out yet alone in. I remember being in Palatka FL and some guy tried to pull me over in his then unmarked Caprice (9C1 style) with no municipal or state tags and showed a badge. Told me to pull over. I could see him, but he couldn't see me. I just kept driving while he followed for a few miles and then gave up. Never heard anymore from him or anyone else and since that time, I've resolved to stick to my guns and never ever to pull over for someone in an unmarked/unidentified unit. Plus it can't be fleeing to elude if you don't know or should NOT have known that it was an LEO.
