I had my first run-in with a cop impersonator this morning. On my way home from work at 5:30am (I work midnights)
I work in Detroit mind you. So im driving minding my own business, no cars around. This car comes up behind me and gets right up my ***, like inches away. And im driving at least 5 over, so its not like I was driving slow. Then he finally whips around me. It pissed me off because the lane next to me was completely empty, so there was no need to get right up my ***.
So as he is speeding by me, me and my brother look over and see that is around a 1999 gold impala, and we could see the driver, he looked nothing like a cop. Now, its a two lane road, but it splits off up ahead, and you have to be in my lane to get onto the freeway (where he was going). So my brother tells me "f*** that, punch it and smoke his ***, don't let him by you"
So lay the hammer down, my Hemi was screaming. It was the first time that I have punched it like that. He didn't stand a chance, and I stopped him from getting in front of me. It forced him to brake and get behind me so that he didn't miss his ramp.
Here is where it happened. So he gets behind me, and BAM. Red and Blue flashy Police lights come from his dash/window and lighting up my whole jeep. I was about to be angry as hell. I was already thinking of things to say to the cop. Like "officer I know I was out of line, but why the hell did you get right up on my rear end, inches away, when there was another lane with nobody in it?"
So I turn my turn signal on and go to pull over, then the guy turns his lights off and keeps driving away. There was no way that was a police car, it was a junky old impala and the driver looked like a damn gang member.
Needless to say, It was a pretty good scare.
I don't think I will be doing that again.
