CHEROKEE COUNTY, Okla. — A teenager in Cherokee County could be in a lot of hot water for impersonating a state trooper.
Investigators said two women were sitting in a parked car on a driveway at a home in a rural area near Lake Tenkiller when a guy in a pickup and a cell phone app flashing blue and red lights pulled up behind them.
Chennault said the teenaged driver was wearing a hoodie with the words state trooper printed on it. The teen asked one of the women for her driver's license, told them he was investigating a noise complaint, and even asked if they were willing to take a Breathalyzer test.
