The two State Troopers could see in their rear view mirror that the person driving the Charger had a uniform on, but they knew straight away that the vehicle was not one of theirs.
The fake Cop then drove alongside the real Police and started to shout at them, demanding that they pull over immediately.
The State Troopers positioned themselves behind the Charger and instead indicated for him to pull over – which he then did.
