Police Impersonator Pulls Over Detective

SELDEN, N.Y. (AP) – A Long Island man faces impersonation charges after police said a driver he pulled over for a traffic stop turned out to be a legitimate detective. Suffolk County Police said 35-year-old Victor Alfaro-Marquez of Selden was arrested Monday night, hours after the attempted traffic stop.

Detective William Zambito was driving home from work at about 4:30 a.m. when an unmarked car with flashing lights and sirens stopped him. When Zambito told Alfaro-Marquez he was an off-duty officer, police said Alfaro-Marquez fled the scene.

Alfaro-Marquez was arrested at his home. Police recovered two badges, handcuffs, a pellet pistol in a holster and a Drug Enforcement Agency baseball hat and shirt.

He was released on bail on a charge of criminal impersonation.

There was no telephone listing for Alfaro-Marquez in Selden.

    I get pulled over alot in Pittsburgh with my personal Crown Vic because some idiot with a car similar to mine has tried to stop someone. Jail is too good for an impersonator....unless you put him in with those on death row that hate cops. Give him plenty of Vaseline and make him pay for impersonating those that dedicate their lives to the protection of others.
