A Maryland man allegedly equipped his white truck with flashing red and blue lights, then made a traffic stop on a highway in Upper Marlboro — but the guy he pulled over was an off-duty cop.

When Anthony Kenneth Mastrogiovanni realized he had pulled over a Capitol Heights police officer earlier this week, he tried to cover by claiming he was a military officer from Louisiana, MSNBC reported.

Still, he reportedly kept the lie going and told the off-duty cop he was speeding. The officer told Mastrogiovanni that he was outside his jurisdiction and that his blue and red lights were illegal.

The 29 year old man was arrested and charged with impersonating a cop. We're unable to confirm whether or not he's also been charged with being an extreme fool.
