A teenager has been accused of flashing a badge and what appeared to be a handgun at another driver while impersonating a police officer during a road-rage confrontation in Elmont on Monday afternoon.

Nassau County police said Andrew Schreier was driving on Elmont Road when he pulled alongside a vehicle driven by a 29-year-old man, rolled his window down and flashed a gold badge at 3 p.m.

“I’m a cop, and I’ll give you tickets,” the 19-year-old Elmont man allegedly yelled at the victim before pointing the weapon at the other driver and the victim’s 47-year-old passenger, according to police.

The victims called 911, followed Schreier into a dead end and led responding officers to him with the help of a neighbor, police said.

Schreier was found to have glass bottle in his shoe that contained a substance believed to be MDMA, the active intoxicant in the club drug ecstasy.

The gun that he allegedly menaced the victims with turned out to be a black airsoft pistol, which investigators also recovered, police said. The badge he flashed was from the U.S. Postal Police, Nassau police said.

The teen was also in possession of a forged New Jersey license, a forged Department of Homeland Security photo identification and two Federation of Postal Police photo IDs, police said.

Schreier was charged with criminal possession of a controlled substance, forgery, criminal impersonation, menacing and possession of a dangerous weapon. He will be arraigned Tuesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
