"You could see the hat he had on it said police, you knew it wasn't, so we tried to get away from him and he kept following us."
Investigators say, he drove beside them and rolled down his window. "He held up his badge up like this and a gun and points it at the window at us and I say ok you need to turn down a side street or something. And we get over and he's behind us shining a spot light into the car."
