NORWALK, Conn. -- A Brooklyn, N.Y., man was arrested in Norwalk early Saturday morning and charged with pretending to be a police officer.

Mohamed Sayed-Ahmed, 24, was charged with one count of impersonating a police officer. Bond was set at $1,000 and he will appear in court April 29.

Ahmed approached an officer outside a bar on West Avenue at about 2 a.m. Saturday to complain about being thrown out of the bar, police said. According to police reports, he said the person who had him thrown out did not work at the bar. The officer told Ahmed that he would have to take it up with the management, and that no law was being broken, police said.

Ahmed told the officer that he was a member of the New York Police Department, according to police reports. When asked to show his badge, he said he couldn't because he was outside his jurisdiction, police said. The officer told Ahmed that he should not lie about that, and asked his rank and precinct. Ahmed said he was a detective but would not provide his precinct, police said. He also  refused to provide any other form of identification.

Ahmed eventually gave the officer his New York driver's license and a Police Benevolent Association card, and said his uncle was in the NYPD. Police then took him into custody.

I'm gonna get me a Police Benevolent Association card.

Me too! I have unpaid parking tixs I need help with!! Just joking《wink-wink》

This poor schmuck starts whining to some cop about getting thrown out of some bar, then tells this cop he's an off - duty NYC cop? Talk about pitiful!
Did he think that cop was going to order them at bar to let him back inside, as a professional courtesy?
Dude must've been pretty desperate to get back in there! Too damn funny!

I am actually a bit surprised the failures of the NPD didn't over step their authority and order the bar to let him back in . I bet if he was really a cop the failures of the NPD would have.

Shame the NPD doesn't put the same effort into solving the 100s of unsolved shootings and killings of the past 4 years.

If you lived somewhere that did not have a "no snitch policy" you would appreciate the police. They do tend to bust criminals on a daily basis.
How many times have you been busted???

This reminds me of our resident troll Dirty Duck that lives in NY and trolls the CT sites.

This is a very common illness with people who are adopted, having an identity crisis.

Impersonating another person. What a sick, creep. People like this who have identity crisis need to get help. But maybe he is poor and cannot afford it?
