NBC 5 News

State Police have issued a warning to drivers about a man impersonating a trooper.  Police say the man pulled a driver over between exits 73 and 71 on I-95 in Old Lyme Wednesday morning.

Instead of issuing a speeding ticket, the man asked the driver for $50 in exchange for a verbal warning.  Investigators say the suspect was wearing a dark grey uniform-style shirt, with no name tags or visible badges.

State Police say the man was driving a dark gray Dodge Charger with a single blue light mounted in the windshield.

If you have information, call Troop F at (860) 399-2100.
