Police: Phony officer pulled over bicyclist


Timothy Rutherford, 25, is charged with impersonating a police officer, false imprisonment and operating a vehicle with blue lights restricted to law enforcement. 

PELHAM - A Pelham man faces a slew of charges after police say he drove an SUV fitted with grill strobe lights and pulled over at least one person riding a bicycle.

Timothy Rutherford, 25, is charged with impersonating a police officer, false imprisonment and operating a vehicle with blue lights restricted to law enforcement.

Rutherford was driving the dark-colored SUV near Old Bridge Street in Pelham Wednesday about 11:50 a.m., when he allegedly pulled up behind a bicyclist and turned on the strobe lights in the vehicle's grill, according to Pelham police.

Police said he ordered the bicyclist to lie on the ground with his arms at his side, which he did. As the victim was lying on the street, Rutherford allegedly drove away without approaching him.

The bicyclist reported the incident to police and officers found a vehicle matching his description driving north on Bridge Street. Rutherford was the driver of that SUV, police said.

Rutherford's vehicle was impounded pending a search warrant and he is being held at the Pelham Police Department.
