Police Impersonator Urinates on Teen’s Hat – Dumb Criminal Of The Day
Impersonating a police officer is a pretty serious offense. But odds favor you getting caught if you do things like pee on teenagers’ belongings and drive around in a ‘police car’ with license plates that read ‘PUNISHER.
Today’s story comes to us from Albuquerque, New Mexico where sheriff’s deputies arrested a man doing just that.
According to KRQE, this guy showed up to a house with a group of teenagers hanging out in front of it. He jumped out of his car, flashed a badge and threatened the kids with a gun. He also took the time to urinate all over one of the teens hats.
One of the boy’s moms saw what was happening and came outside to demand to “officer’s” badge number. He shouted out a fake number, got in his car and sped off.
This same guy was also tied to two other cases where he pretended to be a cop and pulled women over. It was easy to link the cases together because of the guy’s license plates with read “PUNISHER.”
Safe to say that’s not a standard-issue government plate.
And this guy is no stranger to impersonation; he had been arrested two years prior after claiming to be a federal agent with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.
