Dalton man arrested for impersonating officer

A Dalton man was arrested on charges of impersonating an officer after he attempted to pull another vehicle over.

On Saturday night, a driver complained to police that 53-year-old Jackie Plemons, of 2840 Five Springs Road, drove up next to him in a red Mustang on the Dalton Bypass and appeared to try to get him to race, said police spokesman Bruce Frazier.

The driver told police that, when he accelerated trying to pass, Plemons activated a strobe light system in the grill of his car and a blue LED light bar across his bumper, Frazier said.

This is a no-brainer. There's a simple solution here. If the law disallows real cops in unmarked cars to pull over citizens, no one will have to worry about cop impersonators pulling over ciizens. Citizens won't have to second guess if that unmarked car with those flashing blue lights in their rearview mirror belongs to a real cop or a criminal.
