Man arrested on suspicion of impersonating law enforcement officer

A 61-year-old Miami man was arrested Sunday after he impersonated a police officer on Interstate 75, the Florida Highway Patrol reports.

Lloyd Chang,  attempted to stop multiple vehicles and flashed a badge at them, troopers said.

One driver who refused to stop called FHP when Chang tried to pull him over while driving a dark-tinted Toyota Camry, troopers said.

The driver told troopers that Chang had pulled alongside him and flashed a badge. When the driver didn't stop, Chang drove in front of the car and slowed down, at which time the driver called for help, troopers said.

Chang was stopped near mile marker 41 in Broward County.

Troopers found a concealed weapons permit badge hanging around Chang's neck and a .357 revolver behind the passenger seat, a media release said.

Chang was arrested on charges of impersonating a law enforcement officer and taken to jail in Collier County.
