The Chicago Tribune reported the Chicago Police arrested a 14-year-old boy on Saturday for impersonating a police officer. The boy faces criminal defense charges, as a juvenile, with impersonating an officer.
According to the Tribune, the boy dressed in a police uniform and reported for duty at 1:30 p.m. at the Grand Crossing District station on 7040 S. Cottage Grove Ave. The boy told the office that he was reporting from another district and checked out a police radio and ticket book. For the next five hours, the boy and an office from the station went out on duty, making traffic stops and going on calls, including one for domestic violence. The officer began to get suspicious when the boy couldn’t produce any credentials.
