Teens Impersonated Police Officers with Airsoft Guns

Two teenagers were arrested in Fort Worth Wednesday night after authorities say they impersonated police officers and tried to pull over another vehicle.

An officer driving down east Lancaster spotted a vehicle with flashing lights attempting to pull over another vehicle at approximately 2:30 a.m. Two people got out of the car and were approaching the other vehicle.

The officer pulled up behind them and asked what they were doing. One of them replied, "Did you see how fast that car was going?" according to police.

The officer asked who they were and two males pulled out a plastic badge that read "Commander," as well as a pellet gun and an airsoft. One of the teens was wearing a sheriff's shirt, while the other was wearing a police uniform.

The 18 and 19-year-old were arrested and will be charged with impersonating an officer.

  1. It's unfortunate when kids ruin their lives doing stuff like that. It also gives our beloved airsoft sport a bad name. To think the worst we did when were kids was toilet paper houses. :-)
