'I'm the sheriff': Gentleman in phony cop car halted by actual lawman

A sheriff in suburban Detroit was not fooled by a suspicious gentleman driving what appeared to be a police car.

[NARRATOR: It was not a police car.]

Oakland County Sheriff Mike Bouchard told reporters he was driving away from a meeting Thursday, and saw a vehicle with police-style bumpers, various lights on the rear end, and an "emergency response" decal.

Sheriff Bouchard hit the emergency light switch on his car, and stopped the weird vehicle, which also had a fake radar on the dashboard and a 'police' computer.

And he found a loaded .45 glock and a large Bowie knife.

"He looks at me and says, 'Who are you?' And I said, 'I'm the sheriff. Who are you?'" Bouchard told Detroit, Michigan news channel WDIV-TV.
