A man accused of posing as a police officer got a heavy dose of karma after he pulled over a van in Hicksville, New York that just happened to be full of police detectives, according to the Nassau County Police Department.
According to police, 25-year-old Valiery Portlock was driving in a black Nissan Sentra on Hicksville Road near Roosevelt Avenue in Hicksville around 11 a.m. last Friday.That's when police say he turned on emergency lights and started blowing an air horn, telling the van to pull over.
That van was full of detectives from the Nassau County Police Department's electronics squad.
As soon as the detectives told Portlock who they were, police say he tried to flee by speeding away into oncoming traffic.Police say he eventually got on the Long Island Expressway, where highway patrol was able to stop and arrest Portlock. Police released Portlock "on his own recognizance" following an arraignment on Saturday. He is due back in court Thursday.
