League City police search for cop imposter

Police: Man used fake badge to pull woman over

By Jennifer Bauer - Reporter

LEAGUE CITY, Texas - Police in League City are looking for a man who is posing as one of them and even pulled a woman over using a fake badge.

The incident happened on Wednesday in a parking lot in the 2700 block of the Gulf Freeway South.

Investigators said the man, who was driving an orange-colored Jeep, told the woman she was driving recklessly. 

The woman wasn't hurt, but the incident is still unsettling to League City residents. They're hoping this man gets caught. 

"We even tell our children that police officers are someone you can trust and turn to, but with someone posing like that it's scary," said Caitlin McKnight. 

"If it doesn't look right you need to question it and maybe call 911 to avoid getting hurt," said Donald Savage.

Police do have a license plate number and are trying to track the suspect down.
