Richardson woman falls for the ol’ fake-cop-in-Crown-Vic routine
In her defense, there were flashing red and blue lights involved.
A woman driving on Campbell Road near Coit (in Richardson) was pulled over at about 9 p.m. on Thursday (Dec. 25) by a man she at first took to be a police officer.
She took him to be a police officer because he flashed his red-and-blue interior-mounted lights at her, and he was driving a late-model Ford Crown Victoria (black in color) with tinted windows, and he asked to see her driver's license (which she - OOPS! - didn't have).
When the anonymous woman had a chance to study the chap's gear up close and personal, she noted that a) he was not wearing a sidearm, and b) his badge and shoulder patches appeared suspiciously generic.
Realizing that something was rotten in the municipality of Richardson (if not the state of Denmark), she took off running and was presumably able to eventually call in the actual Richardson constabulary - who would appreciate you phoning them at 972-744-4801 if you have any information about the bogus cop incident.
