MIAMI — Two men impersonating officers were arrested after pulling over a South Florida commissioner and former officer.

Miami-Dade Commissioner Joe Martinez became suspicious when he was pulled over by a sports utility vehicle with flashing lights on Wednesday, NBC News reports. 

Martinez says the vehicle was too spiffy to be a police car. It also had temporary tags.

The commissioner refused to pull over and was able to flag down an officer in a squad car on the side of the road who radioed for help.

The men were taken into custody.
