Teens Use iPhone To Mimic Police Lights

NAPLES, Fla., (UPI) –  Florida police said they arrested a pair of teenagers accused of using an iPhone app to imitate police lights and pull over motorists near a mall.

Naples police said an officer patrolling the parking lot of the Coastland Center Mall in Naples just prior to 7 p.m. saw a tan Ford Ranger pickup flashing red and blue lights behind another vehicle and recognized the driver as Ryan McMahon Schulze, 19, who is not in law enforcement, the Naples Daily News reported Wednesday.

The officer stopped the truck and Schulze and passenger Matthew Levi Davis, 18, said they “were just messing around” while waiting for a friend who worked at the mall.

The teenagers said they were using an iPhone app called “Police Lights” to mimic emergency lights and a text message found on Davis’ phone said, “Another person pulled over,” the police report stated.

Schulze was arrested on a felony charge of impersonating an officer and a misdemeanor charge of unlawful use of blue lights.

Davis was arrested on the same charges as well as misdemeanor counts of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.
