Police: Suspected Trooper Impersonator Arrested

Posted: Updated:

BAY CITY, Mich. (AP) - Police say they've arrested a 17-year-old who is described as infatuated with law enforcement for pretending to be a state trooper at a downtown Bay City hotel.

Bay City Public Safety Director Michael J. Cecchini says that officers arrested him on Monday on a misdemeanor charge of false representation of a police officer. Arraignment is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon.

Reportedly the teen stopped by the Budget Inn late Saturday, telling staff that he was responding to a fight in a room. Police say the teen was wearing a makeshift uniform, including a badge and Michigan State Police shoulder patches.

The teen was arrested after police put a photo of the suspect on its Facebook page. If convicted, he faces up to one year in jail.
