Md. police arrest police impersonator

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WUSA9) --Annapolis Police Department said they arrested a 47-year-old man from Annapolis Friday for impersonating a police officer and for several traffic violations after a traffic incident.

Police said around 6:41 p.m. a frantic 26-year-old woman called police after a man, Kevin Hall, showed a badge to her and tried to get her to pull over.

Hall was driving a white work van. Police said the woman and Hall had been driving on Forest Drive in separate vehicles when a minor traffic incident happened.

Authorities said Hall started following the woman and when both vehicles stopped at Tyler Ave and Bay Ridge Ave, Hall got out of his van and went up to the woman's vehicle. He showed her a badge and tried to get her to pull over.

Police said the woman then called 911 and continued driving, while Hall followed her. Deputies found Hall and the van and saw a badge and handcuffs inside of his van. Hall told officers he was a federal agent.

Hall has a lengthy arrest record with the Annapolis Police Department, police said. He was arrested and charged with three counts related to impersonating a police officer and an alcohol violation.

Authorities said he was also charged with several traffic offenses related to driving while suspended and revoked, reckless driving, and negligent driving.

Police said he is being held at the Jennifer Road Detention Center on a $110,000 bond.

"Our dispatchers did an outstanding job coordinating with the victim and our officers on the street," said Police Chief Michael Pristoop. "As a result we were able to remove a criminal with a long arrest record from the community."
