Police report fake cop stopped car north of Indy

– Police say a central Indiana woman was stopped by a man impersonating an officer.

The Boone County Sheriff’s Department says the woman told police she was stopped early Monday morning north of Indianapolis by a man driving a dark car with a red-and-blue dash light. Police say a man wearing dark clothes approached the woman’s car and told her she had been speeding.

When the man told her to come back to his car, the woman told police she asked for another officer to be called to the scene and the man drove away.

Police say the man wasn’t wearing anything identifying him as a police officer.

The Indianapolis Star reports police in Indiana must be in uniform or in a marked police car to stop a motorist.
