CHEYENNE, Wyo.— The Colorado State Patrol(CSP) says a man wearing a police-like uniform and driving a patrol-type vehicle was arrested Monday morning in Denver.

According to a report from Fox31 in Denver, CSP said police were called to US 36 and Sheridan around 6:30 a.m. for reports of a road rage patrol car incident during the morning commute rush.

Investigators say the 39-year-old man was driving a white sedan equipped with police lights.

The vehicle was stopped near Interstate 70 and Interstate 25 around 7 a.m.

Fox31’s reporting goes on to say the 39-year-old suspect was taken into custody wearing an Aurora police uniform. His car had all the dash cam computers and looked like a patrol-type vehicle, according to CSP.

Several hours after the incident, CSP confirmed that the suspect had an amber/yellow light bar, which is legal, and was not actively trying to impersonate a police officer according to media reports.

No injuries were reported. CSP said it is unlikely the man will face anything more than a charge for careless driving.

Officers confirm to Fox31, that the man presented a volunteer card issued by the Aurora Police Department in 2020. The tactical gear and police lights in the man’s personal vehicle were not issued by the Aurora Police Department.
