This man pulled a car over on I-695 - the Baltimore Beltway, on the outer loop near Greenspring Avenue. Fortunately for the motorist who had been pulled over by a non-police, the real trooper saw this fakey police car - a black and white 2012 Chevy Impala with blue and white flashing lights - and correctly deduced something was wrong.
The man arrested is Timothy Ervin Trivett, 54, of Yorktown, Virginia, and he is facing charges on these five offenses:
- Impersonating a police officer
- Loaded handgun in vehicle
- Loaded handgun on person
- Handgun on person
- Handgun in vehicle
|Fake cop, real mugshot|
Trivett posted a $10,000 bond and was released from the Baltimore County Detention Center. He'll be driving back up from historic Yorktown for his trial on Aug. 21 in the fashionable Baltimore County District Court.
I have these questions:
- How many times has he done this?
- Does he issue fake traffic tickets? Or worse, has he committed crimes against citizens he has pulled over?
- When he approached the car, was the plan to say, "Fake Police. License and registration, please"?
- Why? What is lacking in this man's world that drove him to acquiring this car and uniform and gun and police regalia and pulling over random vehicles on the interstate? Did he want to be important or in charge or have power over people?
- Wouldn't it be great to send him to fake prison with fake prison guards for a real long time?
