True true story. This morning, we were driving to Allentown and got behind a car that was swerving all over the place. I’m talking well over the center line into the other lane. The car was then braking all over the place, swerving back into the driving lane and then almost hitting parked cars on the right.
After a bit of joking, we decided 1. to film it and 2. to call 911. We followed the car for about a mile and watched it almost cause a head on. Then, it pulled over in front of a house. I was still on the line with 911 and pulled over in front of the car after we got the license plate. We told 911 what we saw as a lady in scrub pants got out of the car, almost fell over, and stumbled into her house.
911 thanked me and told me I could go on my way. First time I’ve called 911 since that tree fell in the park and I was on a scooter.
A 24-year-old man was charged Tuesday with impersonating an officer during an incident last month in Allentown where he allegedly pulled over a woman for driving too slow, police said.
Luis D. Collazo-Figueroa of Allentown was upset with a woman at the McDonald’s parking lot at Tilghman and 15th Street on July 28 and allegedly took a blue emergency light out of his car, placed it on his vehicle and stopped her about two blocks away, Assistant Chief Joseph Hanna said.
Hanna said the incident began when Collazo-Figueroa got upset with the woman for driving too slowly as she attempted to leave the McDonald’s parking lot at 7 p.m. on July 28. Collazo-Figueroa yelled at the woman for not driving fast enough and they began arguing, he said.
About two blocks away, Collazo-Figueroa stopped the woman by using the blue emergency light, Hanna said. He was also driving a Ford Crown Victoria, which resembled an older police vehicle, Hanna said.
Oh no he didn’t.
The woman said Collazo-Figueroa was acting as if he was talking to someone on a walkie-talkie, Hanna said and when she asked him if he was a real police officer, he said, “I work for the police.”
I wasn’t aware Crazytown had a police department.
The woman told Collazo-Figueroa she was calling the real police and he fled, Hanna said.
Hanna said Collazo-Figueroa was tracked down by using the city’s surveillance cameras. He said the cameras showed that the police impersonator was driving a black Ford Crown Victoria and police obtained the license plate of the car. SOURCE: The Morning Call
Moral of the story? Don’t stop for fake cops in Allentown.
Also, call 911 if you see a drunk person at 8 a.m. in the morning.
I was wondering where drunk lady was coming from that early. Why not just sleep it off? I mean, it was 8 a.m. Wherever she was had to have a bed or something.
