UPLAND, Calif. (AP) — Police say they arrested a man on suspicion of impersonating a police officer after he tried to pull over a real police detective in Southern California.

KABC-TV reported Friday that a Jeep Wrangler with red and blue flashing lights tried to stop a Rancho Cucamonga detective who was driving an unmarked car in Upland.

Police say the detective turned on his lights and siren to stop the Jeep after realizing the driver wasn't an officer.

Police say the lights purchased online were installed on the Jeep's front grill and made to resemble an undercover police vehicle.

Police arrested 23-year-old Imroj Singh on the misdemeanor charge. He is scheduled to be arraigned on Aug. 5.
