Police Impersonator Arrested

According to police a man was arrested on tuesday after pretending to be a police officer. Police stated that 22-year old Eliyahu Medina was driving a black car equipped with emergency lights, bars on the back windows, and a computer mount in the front, to resemble a police vehicle and allegedly followed another car before pulling the driver over to question him about a stolen cellphone. Police arrived just after 1 am and stated that Medina claimed to be an officer, though the other driver informed police that he did not knew about any stolen cellphones. Medina was arrested on a felony charge of criminal impersonation and was released after arraignment. Police are investigating whether or not the man had ties to an emergency response group that would legally allow him to set his car up with lights.
