FREDERICK, Md. - Maryland State Police in Frederick were investigating an incident in which a man who appeared to be posing as a police officer stopped a vehicle driven by a woman Thursday night.

The woman told officers she was stopped on U.S. 340 near Mount Zion Road on Thursday about 6:15 p.m., according to a state police press release.

The woman said the other vehicle, an older white Ford passenger car, pulled behind her and activated red-and-blue emergency lights that were on the passenger-side dashboard, police said.

A man got out of the car, approached the woman's vehicle at the driver's window and asked the woman to get out of her vehicle, police said.
