OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma City police say a man used a cellphone app that mimics squad lights to try to pull over a motorcyclist, though a passenger in the man's car disputes the claim.
Capt. Dexter Nelson says undercover agents from the department's vice squad saw the flashing lights in the man's car Wednesday night. Nelson says the agents thought the driver was trying to pull over a motorcyclist he was following.
The driver, 28-year-old Michael Railly, was arrested on suspicion of impersonating a police vehicle and other complaints. State law prohibits the use of red and blue lights at the front of any vehicle other than law enforcement or wrecker services.
But passenger Joshua Sossamon tells The Oklahoman that they were lost and not trying to pull anyone over.
