AUSTELL, Ga. – Police in Cobb County arrested a 17-year-old who they say has a history of impersonating a police officer after the teen tried to pull the ruse on a group of July 4th revelers. A group of neighbors were shooting off fireworks in an Austell neighborhood during the holiday on Wednesday when a “police man” told them to stop. Witnesses said the suspect was wearing a Cobb police jacket when he pulled up in an unmarked Nissan Altima and told the group to stop setting off fireworks where they were and instead move to a city park.
Amazing. Every word of what this man just said was wrong.
This man told people to stop shooting fireworks in an Austell neighborhood July 4. Except, he was pretending to be a cop, which is a felony.
