A 14 year-old boy drove a car with flashing blue lights and pulled people over while pretending to be a sheriff’s deputy.
The ballsy teenager also launched his own investigations, say cops who arrested him in San Bernadino, Ca., Tuesday.
Astonishing surveillance footage captured from a camera outside a home shows him pulling up in an unmarked white Ford Explorer, complete with flashing red and blue lights.
The underage fraudster then proceeds to get out of his ‘patrol car’ and stride confidently towards another driver in a realistic uniform to discuss an alleged domestic disturbance.
He was nabbed after the homeowner in Victorville noticed the Explorer had no markings indicating it was a sheriff’s car or law enforcement vehicle.
A press release seen by the San Bernardino Sun continued: ‘The homeowner informed him there was no problem and they had not placed a call to the police.’
The fake deputy then tried to open the door of the home, only to find it locked.
After a confrontation with the homeowner he left, with the puzzled resident later calling genuine law enforcement officers.
When cops began a probe, they found that on the same night the boy had pulled a female driver over, taken information from her and then let her go.
And he also flashed his lights outside a home in the area, before spinning the same story about a domestic disturbance to a 16 year-old boy.
Cops later discovered the car belonged to the boy’s grandmother. He lived with her, and kept ballistic vests and fake firearms in his room.
The boy was taken to juvenile jail awaiting charges
