DATE: Seaford man arrested for impersonating officer
A Seaford man is accused of impersonating a police officer.
The state Division of Alcohol and Tobacco Enforcement says Franckel Desir was arrested in Camden on Thursday after a vehicle stop.
The agency says Desir pulled onto the shoulder and drove through a red light at the intersection of Route 13 and Lockmeath Way, which led to the officer pulling him over.
A bystander told the agent that Desir was allegedly driving erratically, driving vehicles off the road and using flashing emergency lights and a siren.
The agency says Desir is a member of the NYPD Auxiliary but isn't authorized to identify himself as an officer out of state.
He was incarcerated in the Sussex County Correctional Institution on $754 secured bail.
