Impersonating Police Officer
Yonkers Police have arrested a man for allegedly impersonating a police officer.
Cops responded to a report around 6:10 p.m. Monday of a criminal impersonation at 420 South Broadway. Once at the scene, police observed a Nissan Maxima in the area operated by a man later identified as Francis Varghese who appeared disoriented.
According to Police, the 55 year old Varghese, a resident of Yonkers, had gotten into a dispute with the driver of a car inside the Rite Aid parking lot over the right of way of their vehicles.
During the dispute, Varghese allegedly approached the other man, pulled out a wallet containing a badge, and asked him for his driver's license. Officials say he identified himself as a police officer, looked at the man's license, got back into his car and left the scene.
Police arrested him after tracking him down a short time later.
