Sanford police arrested a New Hill man Wednesday on charges of impersonating an officer after he allegedly tried to pull over another driver several days earlier.

A woman reported around 2:15 a.m. on May 22 that she was being pursued south on U.S. 1 near Spring Lane by a vehicle with a flashing blue light. According to police, the woman was able to pull off the road safely “without further interaction with the suspect,” who apparently fled the scene.

Further investigation eventually led to the arrest of Kevin Christopher Lawrence, 18, of New Hill. He was charged with unlawful use of a blue light and impersonating a police officer by use of a blue light. The second charge is a felony.

Lawrence was released from custody on $1,000 unsecured bond.
