Search for police impersonator in Md.
Charles County authorities say they're searching for a man who impersonated a police officer and pulled over a motorist.
The county sheriff's office says an unidentified man driving a Mercury Grand Marquis with a red flashing light stopped a car on Metropolitan Church Road in Bryans Road about 7:30 a.m. Tuesday.
Officials say the man told the driver that he was being pulled over for speeding and asked the driver to get out of the car. They say the driver believed the man was a police officer after seeing a gun in the suspect's waistband.
The man searched the car and asked for the driver's identification before telling the driver that he could go. The driver later reported the incident to police.
