(WMC-TV) - A Memphis man is accused of pulling over a police officer while pretending to be a man of the law.
Tony Newsom is under arrest after police say he pulled over a car on Elvis Presley Boulevard Saturday morning using a smartphone and an app that flashes lights and sounds off like a police siren.
The driver of the car he reportedly pulled over happens to be an off-duty Memphis police officer, who still happened to be in his uniform.
Police say Newsom even had a Memphis Police Department badge, an officer sticker, empty gun holster, 17 rounds of ammunition, and a sex toy inside his car.
Despite everything found inside the car, according to police, the criminal charges stem from using his smartphone to impersonate an officer.
Newsom posted a $250 bond.
He is charged with criminal impersonation, illegal use of flashing blue light on motor vehicle, improper display of registration, and violation of the light law.
