Brenden Wysynski, 18, from New Mexico was caught by authorities while he was staging a traffic stop just after 12:30 am on Monday morning. It's amazing to me how often this still happens.
He told police when asked for a badge 'This is all I got... I'm under-equipped.'. He claimed he'd been working for the Sheriff's office for 3 YEARS!!
The suspicions of Albuquerque Police officers were raised when they noticed a grey Ford Sedan fixed with emergency flashing lights but no police markings.
The driver had pulled over a silver SUV, accusing it of speed driving and appeared to be conducting a traffic stop.
He later confessed and said he bought the badge online.
