Police report fake cop stopped car north of Indy

LEBANON, Ind. (AP) — Police say a central Indiana woman was stopped by a man impersonating an officer.

The Boone County Sheriff's Department says the woman told police she was stopped early Monday morning north of Indianapolis by a man driving a dark car with a red-and-blue dash light. Police say a man wearing dark clothes approached the woman's car and told her she had been speeding.

When the man told her to come back to his car, the woman told police she asked for another officer to be called to the scene and the man drove away.

Police say the man wasn't wearing anything identifying him as a police officer.

The Indianapolis Star reports (http://indy.st/1rGia6Q ) police in Indiana must be in uniform or in a marked police car to stop a motorist.

Three Goshen elementary schools — Chandler, Chamberlain and West Goshen — are providing free meals to all students during the school year as part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Community Eligibility Provision of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. Nearly 80 percent of students at Chandler, 89 percent of students at Chamberlain and 78 percent of students at West Goshen already qualify for free or reduced-price lunches based on their family income. How do you feel about the new lunch program?
