MANASSAS, Va. (AP) - Police say a Virginia man impersonating an officer pulled over a car being driven by a real cop last week.

Prince William County Police say 27-year-old Shawn Michael Robinson of Alexandria pulled over an off-duty officer on Thursday morning.

Police say Robinson was driving a white Crown Victoria close behind the off-duty officer’s car around 1 a.m. Thursday. Police say the real officer pulled over when Robinson turned on a spotlight attached to his car.

Instead of getting out, police say Robinson pulled alongside the officer’s car. Police say Robinson sped off when the officer quickly identified himself.

Police later issued a warrant for his arrest, and Robinson turned himself in. He’s being held without bond on a charge of impersonating an officer.



It’s unclear whether Robinson has an attorney.
