A Stockbridge man is accused of flashing blue lights — from his Jaguar — in an attempt to zoom past traffic in Gwinnett County.
Little did he know, an FBI agent was one of the people he tried to pass.
Dion Sefra Brown, 38, faces a charge of impersonating an officer after allegedly flashing blue lights along I-285 in DeKalb County and then I-85 and Ga. 316 in Gwinnett, Channel 2 Action News reported.
Body camera footage from Lawrenceville police shows officers confront Brown, who denied that he flashed the blue lights. Police told Channel 2 they found a remote control inside the Jaguar, which could be used to activate the lights.
Brown insisted he was with the Henry County Police Department, even providing a badge number to officers, Channel 2 reported.
However, Henry County police told the news station Brown was a police recruit for about a month and a half before resigning more than a year ago. He has no active affiliation with the department.
Brown was arrested April 24 and bonded out of the Gwinnett jail later that day for $5,700, according to jail records.
