17-Year-Old Boy Poses As Fake Cop
It sounds like a plot straight out of Hollywood.But the reality was a lot grimmer for two teenage boys who faked an arrest in Port St Lucie, Florida, as a cover for allegedly stealing $20 of Yu-Gi-Oh!-themed game cards.
According to a police report, Brandon Rhoads, 17, posed as a plain clothed policeman and strolled into a Walmart store with a gun in a holster, flashing a wallet with a badge to store manager Laura Dougherty, 52.
The teenager then ‘arrested’ his underage friend, 14, before marching him out of the store with the Yu-Gi-Oh! cards.
However, the pair caught the eagle eye of Dougherty, who followed them out of Walmart and watched Rhoads unlock a set of toy handcuffs from his friend’s wrists.
