Fake Officer Pulls Over Female Driver In Clarksville
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn.- A man in Clarksville has been charged with criminal impersonation after he pulled a female driver over back in October.
Officials with the Clarksville Police Department said that 23-year-old Derek Miller pulled over a young female driver near exit 11 off Interstate 24 in Clarksville. Miller was said to be driving a gold Chevrolet Impala with flashing white lights and a siren.
Police said at first the female driver was unconcerned by the stop and followed procedure by handing the fake cop her driver's license and her handgun carry permit. According to police, when the man received the handgun carry permit he became very nervous and gave her back her identification. He then got back into his car and fled the area at a high rate of speed.
According to police, the driver thought the situation a little odd, but was not concerned until she spotted the same vehicle parked outside her apartment complex. At this point she became suspicious and reported the incident to Clarksville Police. Upon investigation, officials determined that the young woman had never been stopped by a Clarksville officer and the man that pulled her over was Miller.
Police were able to quickly identify the vehicle and the owner. Miller was arrested and booked into the Montgomery County Jail on criminal impersonation charges.
