Police: Jeep driver with police-style lights charged with impersonating officer in Meriden


MERIDEN — A local man accused of using police-style flashing lights in traffic is due to appear in court next week.

Todd Michaud, 45, of 28 Ann St., was charged with impersonating an officer.

Lt. Sal Nesci, police spokesman, said Sgt. Rob Abouchacra was stopped at a red light on Golden Street in his personal vehicle when a Jeep came up behind him at a high rate of speed. The Jeep turned on red and blue flashing lights and Abouchacra pulled to the side, thinking it was a police vehicle. After the Jeep passed, Abouchacra saw it was not a police vehicle and contacted police dispatch with the license plate number of the Jeep.

Police determined the vehicle belonged to a private citizen, Nesci said. It was stopped a short distance away, and the driver was identified as Michaud.

Michaud was released on $2,500 bond. He is due in Meriden Superior Court on March 7.
