    SHREVEPORT, La. - A man impersonating an officer with a flashing red light in his car has been arrested after he pulled over the wrong driver — the mayor of Shreveport, La., police said.
    Police think the suspect was using the in-dash light to maneuver through traffic Monday night in northwest Louisiana.
    Shreveport Mayor Cedric Glover said he pulled over when the driver pulled up behind him, but that the man turned around and left as soon as he saw it was the mayor.


    Glover said he then followed the car and called police, who arrived just as the suspect pulled up to a house.
    The suspect, Daniel Niederhelman, 21, of Shreveport has been charged with false impersonation of a peace officer.
    Police seized the light and a handgun from Niederhelman's holster.
    Authorities said Niederhelman works for a private security[​IMG] company, but wasn't authorized to use the light.

    Effin rent-a-cop wannabees (no BC this is not directed towards you, I know you have more sense than this)

    When I was a security guard in Chicago area we had a guard who got busted when he pulled over a Deputy US Marshall - talk about an oh poop moment...

    There are plenty of people that do this line of work and do it well and never pull this kind of stunt, but there are plenty who feel they are empowered or wanted to be a LEO but didn't make it, couldn't make it, or haven't tried and do this crap. Glad he got caught
