POLICE ARREST MAN DRIVING FAKE POLICE CAR
PLEASANT GROVE, Ala. (AP) – Authorities have arrested a Pleasant Grove man who was driving an unmarked Crown Victoria with police lights.
Police arrested 36-year-old Jonathan Cole on Tuesday on charges of impersonating a police officer.
Pleasant Grove police Lt. Danny Reid said officers spotted the car on a roadway Tuesday. Cole initially told officers he worked for a neighboring agency. When officers pressed him for details, he couldn’t provide them with answers.
Reid said Cole also had in his possession a yellow visibility vest with the word “police” on it and a book called “Forensics For Dummies.”
Cole’s bond is set at $5,000. It’s unclear if he has an attorney.
