Man in drag impersonating Md. officer

By Associated Press

Baltimore police say a man dressed as a woman has been impersonating an officer and conducting traffic stops.

The most recent bogus stop was on Sunday, when police say the man stopped a woman and made off with her driver’s license. Police say the man was wearing knee-high boots and a shoulder-length black wig.

Erin Hartz tells The Baltimore Sun that she was pulled over by the man last month. She says he looked at her driver’s license and registration and warned her not to speed.

Hartz says the man was wearing a ginger bob-style wig, an oversized police hat and pleated pants that “poofed” at the hips.

She says the incident reminded her of a John Waters movie and that “this would only happen in Baltimore.”

I think it was a special undercover police unit cracking on illegal drag racing.

I got nuthin' to say. This is just too weird. And the 'drag race' thing is genius.

How do we know it wasn't a police officer impersonating a drag queen?
