PEOPLE BEING PEOPLE

Meet this future Darwin Award nominee: Anthony Kenneth Mastrogiovanni, who is alleged to have impersonated a police officer but got caught when he tried to pull over an actual police officer. As The Associated Press reports, Maryland Police say Mastrogiovanni turned his flashing lights on his white pickup and pulled over an off-duty officer. When that guy identified himself as a cop, Mastrogiovanni said he was "a military police officer from Louisiana," which is definitely not a reasonable alibi. Is the off-duty officer going to think that, of course, Mastrogiovanni was doing some traffic stops in Maryland. You know, just lending a hand to the under-staffed locals from his white pickup... No, no, this excuse did not work well, particularly when the cop told him that if he were a military officer from Louisiana, he had no jurisdiction in Maryland, and also couldn't use the red-blue flashing lights there. Mastrogiovanni fled, but police caught up with him, and here we are.
