14-year-old fake cop made arrests

CHICAGO ? Chicago police said a 14-year-old boy who posed as an officer, drove a patrol car and aided in an arrest and seven officers, face disciplinary reviews for the ?lax? behaviour that allowed the teen?s escapade to happen.

?They weren?t paying attention,? Supt. Jody Weis said at a news conference announcing the completion of the investigation.

?They were lax. I?m very upset.?

?This whole incident is very disturbing.?

The teenager, an aspiring police officer, allegedly wore a uniform and entered a South Side police station through an unlocked back door around 1:30 p.m. on Jan. 24. He was issued a radio and rode with a patrol officer for more than five hours, at times using the terminal in the squad car and responding to five assignments, Weis said.
