Auburn Hills police are investigating a man who reportedly impersonated a police officer.

On Tuesday, Sept. 24, an officer from the Auburn Hills Police Department stopped a vehicle on northbound I-75 near Lapeer Road for improper window tint and suspicious LED lights in the windows.

The driver, a 37-year-old man from Flat Rock, was driving a silver 2012 Dodge Charger, police say.

During the traffic stop, the officer saw a laptop mounted in the vehicle's center console and a loss prevention badge next to it. It was determined that the driver had a suspended license and numerous traffic related warrants for his arrest. The driver was arrested for driving on a suspended license.

Police searched the vehicle and found a black Glock style BB gun, a bulletproof style vest with police patches on it and OC/pepper spray. On the front of the vest, police say there was a patch that stated "Michigan Police Attorney General." Further inspection revealed that the vehicle had 360 degree red and blue lights and a functioning siren.

Auburn Hills police are looking to see if anyone has had any encounters with this person on the road. Anyone with information is asked to contact Auburn Hills PD at 248-370-9460.
