A driver has been arrested in Al Barsha after he was caught impersonating a Dubai Police officer and carrying alcohol in his car.
The 43-year-old Arab man was originally pulled over as the car’s license had expired.
A traffic policeman pulled him over in Al Barsha. He then discovered the man was impersonating a Dubai Police officer and using his driving license and identity card. Alongside that, he was caught carrying alcohol in his car.
The arrested man said the car belonged to a friend.
And he also told the policeman – the real policeman, that is – that he’d found the police officer’s license and ID card by mistake.
And then, presumably, kept on using them by mistake for the next four years.
Yup. OK then.
The Police officer who lost his wallet reported it lost in 2016 before being issued with a replacement license card.
The accused has now been referred to the Public Prosecution and the Criminal Court where the trial has already begun.
