Crazy and stupid. Why anyone wants to pretend to be a cop is beyond me. When you commit fraud and do stupid things, expect to get caught.
A security guard who apparently wanted to play police officer pulled over the wrong person Tuesday, according to Dalton, Ga., police.
James Dale Smith, 58, an employee of J.J.K. Security in Chattanooga, Tenn., turned on his strobe light and tried to stop a car on Shugart Road shortly before 10 p.m. Tuesday, police spokesman Bruce Frazier said in a news release.
What Smith didn’t know was the car was an undercover vehicle and the driver a Dalton Police Department detective.
