TALALA, Okla. (AP) - Rogers County authorities say a man posing as an Oklahoma state trooper made a traffic stop in Talala (tuh-LAH’-luh).

Sheriff Scott Walton told KOTV (https://bit.ly/1p2yY4U ) the man told the driver Wednesday night that he was a trooper and that he stopped him for speeding and having a radar detector. Walton says the victim told deputies that the man was driving a white Dodge Charger with flashing lights.

The victim says the man took his driver’s license and insurance card and returned to his car for about 10 minutes - then drove away. The man says he chased the car for several miles but stopped when speeds reached about 100 miles per hour.

Walton says the impersonator was not wearing a uniform and no badge or gun was seen.
