West Hempstead Man Charged With Impersonating Officer
A West Hempstead man has been accused of impersonating a police officer after authorities said he pulled a woman over, flashed a badge and told her she committed traffic violations in Great Neck.
Nassau County police arrested 58-year-old Steven Kleiman and charged him with criminal impersonation.
Police said the 43-year-old victim was driving on Grace Avenue when she heard honking and noticed that she was being tailgated by a dark-colored vehicle at 4:45 p.m.
The victim pulled over on Stoner Avenue, the suspect blocked her in, flashed a mini police shield and identified himself as a police officer before telling her she committed several traffic offences, authorities said.
The victim called 911 after the suspect entered a house on Stoner Avenue, where he was later taken into custody. The victim was not injured.
Kleiman will be arraigned Thursday at First District Court in Hempstead.
