A man was arrested after he allegedly fitted his car with police blue lights and for impersonating an officer in Johannesburg on Sunday, Metro police said.

Spokesman Wayne Minnaar said the man, in his 30s, was apprehended at  the corner of Harrison and De Villiers streets for  having fitted his Silver Jaguar with blue lights.

Minnaar said when the authenticity of the card was checked it was found to be fake. The suspect would appear in the Johannesburg Magistrates Court on Tuesday for impersonating a police officer.
