The Virginia authorities recently arrested a 28-year-old driver who, allegedly, impersonated a police officer to follow a female driver across three states over the weekend. A search of the car revealed that the Virginia man had just about anything he needed to maintain the illusion, the authorities noted.
Virginia Man Was Driving a Car Used to Shot a Music Video
According to the police report, on Saturday afternoon, a female driver, who wants to maintain her anonymity, called the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office and told the deputies that a man driving what appeared to be a shady police car was tailing her.
The victim also claimed that the driver has been following her all weekend, as she passed through Maryland, West Virginia, and Virginia. When asked to describe the vehicle and the driver, the woman told the police that the car was all white and had blue lights on top. She added that, at one point, the car’s driver used the lights to make his way through busy traffic.
According to the Fauquier County Sheriff’s Office, the car was pulled over later that day by a Warrenton, police deputy. The driver, later identified as 28-year-old Jerry Lentz Saintvil, allegedly gave the arresting officer a fake ID.
More than that, the man claimed that the vehicle, a 2010 Chevrolet Impala, was not his. Saintvil declared that the car belongs to a movie company which recently used it to shot a music video. Indeed, as the authorities noted, the car had the word “police” written on its bank and front port and blue lights on top.
When confronted with tailgating the female driver, the Virginia man stated that he was driving home. A search of his vehicle revealed several police equipment lookalikes such as an airsoft gun, a tactical vest, a uniform, and a portable radio.
