A man in Northampton has been charged with making a statement suggesting he was a police officer by allegedly driving a vehicle fitted with flashing blue lights and a siren.
A Volvo car allegedly belonging to Michael Allen, aged 35, of Axe Head Road, Briar Hill, Northampton, was seized by officers on Tuesday.
It is alleged that Allen was driving a vehicle that had been marked up like a police car and had blue warning lights and a siren fitted.
A police spokesman said Allen had been charged with making a statement suggesting he was a police constable, using a vehicle on the road with a blue warning light fitted, using a motor vehicle fitted with a siren and using a motor vehicle without insurance.
He is due to appear in court later this year.
