Watch out on 362-1488 area. Ghost Cop!

Saw a Harley on 362 this morning. He had been pulled over by a cop in a Burgundy SUV. Not sure if it's his personal vehicle, but that didn't stop him from pulling this guy over.

You can't tell it's a cop until your right on top of it. Looked like a Waller County Cop. It has the hidden lights and all, but you don't see them until they turn on.

Just one more thing to look out for!

A police vehicle is required to be marked with identifiable police markings in order for there to be any charge of evading. The ghost cars Houston uses are about the bare minimum, where the markings are in reflective tape that is visible from the side.

As an LEO, I would advise anyone who has a question about who is pulling them over, if the vehicle isn't identifiable as a police vehicle, e.g. has woowoo lights and stuff and not a traditional vehicle, don't pull over in a secluded area. Take them off to a habited convenience store or something like that. Legitimate LEO's understand this precaution and approve of it.

FWIW, I have been pulled over by a volunteer fireman. Oddly, I knew the guy, not a friend, just someone I'd seen on fire scenes. I was an LEO at the time, and when I was finished with him, he needed a new set of drawers AND he was no longer part of the VFD. I didn't charge him... He was kinda stupid, and I figure he was just playing po-po without any intent beyond a thrill.

Is there any thing that says you cant drive to a safer spot than pulling over on side of road. I think it should be encouraged by cops for safety, makes more sense than pull over laws. I wonder how far you could go before they try to say your evading? I d prefer to pull in some where even for marked cars for safety reasons.


Semi related in Detroit there were reports of fake cops pulling over people and robbing them, we'll turned out to be false reporting... they were real cops.

a friend of mine pulled over for a black tahoe near baybrook mall with cop light in windshield. He rolled down his window ready for to give license etc, and it wasnt a cop and the dude knocked him out and took his wallet. it highly unlikely it will ever happen to me but just one reason not to pull over for un marked cars.

Good info here, Thx for sharing. You can not see the side of a police car in your rear view mirror ! No light bar and ghost lettering... I hope those cops understand the representative they are being and our understanding to that.

I've seen LEOs recommend to call 911 and they will confirm the unmarked vehicle for you. Same deal if they come knocking on your house door. You can call 911 and talk to the officer before ever opening the door.

Even the fact the car Is burgundy means u shouldn't pull over. The state just spent a lot of money getting all police agencies navy blue uniforms and all cars are either solid black or black and white. If a burgundy vehicle tried to pull me over I'd try to ride until I saw another officer since you can't call. I bet it was a firefighter or someone playing wanna be
