SUPERIOR, WI (WTAQ) - Police in Superior are looking for a man who impersonated an officer, and obtained a woman’s personal information by stopping her for a traffic violation.
According to police, the man stopped the woman’s vehicle around 1 a.m. Monday and asked for her license, registration, and proof of insurance. He went back to his vehicle – which had blue and red flashing lights – and then told the woman that her insurance was not up to date.
She was free to leave at that point – and she called 911 a short time later to ask about her traffic stop. Officials did not have a record of it – and they have no officer with the name he provided, “Officer Darg.”
He was wearing a Superior Police baseball cap with dress pants and a T-shirt with the label “SPD.” He was in his mid-30’s, and the woman said she did not see a firearm and or a police badge on him.
