Fake cop extraordinaire
One can only assume the dialogue between James Merket, fake cop extraordinaire, and Cpl. Clayton Willis, actual cop extraordinaire, went something like this:
Merket: “Hey there, officer, I’ll need your license and registration please … psyche!”
Willis: “I’ll need to borrow your handcuffs now, doofus.”
It seems that Merket, who may have watched one too many episodes of "Real Stories of the Highway Patrol" in his time, was driving a car with police gear and emergency lights when he pulled over an off-duty sheriff’s deputy for speeding, TheIndyChannel.com reports.
Cops say the un-uniformed Merket identified himself as a state policeman and asked Cpl. Willis if he was in a hurry.
But Willis wasn’t buying it.
After a quick conversation, he followed Merket back to his car, at which point the bogus bobby changed his tune.
"He stated, 'Hey, I lied to you. I'm not a police officer,'" Willis said. "So, I grabbed his wrist, escorted him out of the vehicle and put his hands on his roof. I then took his weapon from him and proceeded to handcuff him with his cuffs, ironically enough."
Merket faces charges of unlawful use of a police radio and impersonating a public servant.

That lucky bastard. I hope every day I leave the house some jackass would try and pull that kind of stunt with me.The virtue of spirit has no need for thanks or approval. Only the certain conviction that what has been done is right. -Jor El, as played by Marlon Brando
