By Zachary R. Dowdy
A former New York City police officer was charged with impersonating one when he was stopped for speeding Friday morning, Suffolk police said.
Timothy W. Schmidt, 23, of West Islip, was charged with second-degree criminal impersonation and criminal simulation shortly after he flashed an NYPD shield when he was pulled over for going 70 mph in a 55-mph zone Friday morning, Sgt. Skip Hodge of Suffolk Police Highway Patrol said.
