A Fort Campbell military policeman has been arrested for impersonating a cop.

Clarksville police say 20-year-old Christopher Grieves is charged with criminal impersonation of a police officer and false imprisonment.

Grieves admitted to mounting blue strobe lights on his white Crown Victoria car, and pulling over a driver earlier this month on Richview Road. That driver didn't believe Grieves was a cop, since he had a gold badge that only said "police."

That driver drove away and reported the incident to police. When Clarksville Police were interviewing Grieves, he admitted to that crime and pulling over two other drivers near the BP gas station in the Lafayette area.

If you are unsure a cop pulling you over is real, you can drive to a well-lit area, keep your doors locked and windows rolled up until you see the officer's uniform and badge, or if you feel threatened you can call 911 and report your location. Dispatchers will know if you're dealing with a real cop, and send help if you're not.
