GREELEY, Colorado — Weld County Sheriff Steve Reams shakes his head in confusion: Somewhere out in his county, a guy with flashing lights on his Dodge Charger has been stopping drivers and warning them they’re violating coronavirus-related travel restrictions.

Whoever is stopping the cars isn’t one of Ream’s deputies. Instead, the police impersonator is himself breaking the law and putting himself at extreme risk, because traffic stops are among the most dangerous things most law enforcement officers do. The stops happened several times in March.

The article goes on to state the following:

“For the life of me, I don’t understand why someone would want to do this,” Reams says. “I don’t think there’s a law enforcement agency in the state that has time to do that kind of thing.”

The report states that police impersonators have also been making coronavirus-related stops in Georgia and California.

According to the article, no injuries have been reported in the incidents, as in each case, the fake officers allowed the drivers to continue on their way after questioning them.
