Sewell Man Accused Of Posing As Cop In Crown Vic
A Sewell man has been arrested on a charge of impersonating a police officer on the Atlantic City Expressway. Police also impounded his emergency light-equipped Ford Crown Victoria, a model car widely used as a police vehicle.
State police say 53-year-old Kenneth DiLuigi tried to force motorists out of their lanes and pull them over June 20.
DiLuigi was being held Monday in lieu of $10,000 bail. Police say they don't know if he has a lawyer yet.
State police say motorists who aren't sure if they are being stopped by a real police officer should slow down and put on their flashing lights. They should then contact 9-1-1, let the dispatcher know their location and concern, and stop in a well-lit area with people around.
