Guy was impersonating a cop; so guess who he tried to pull over?

In what is the latest example of “dumb criminal stories,” a Virginia man was arrested late last week for impersonating a police officer.

So how’d he get caught? He pulled over a real police officer.

Watch the Fox News video clip.

Shawn Michael Robinson, 27, of Alexandria, Virginia, was “patrolling” in his Crown Victoria shortly before 1 a.m. Thursday, when he started following another vehicle. He eventually got the vehicle to pull over by turning on his spot light.

When the driver of the other vehicle identified himself as a police officer, Robinson panicked and fled the scene. But the real cop identified Robinson through his tag number.

It reminds me of a scene in the 1981 film “Body Heat,” where Mickey Rourke playing arsonist Teddy Lewis, gives William Hurt, as Florida lawyer Ned Racine, some sage advice:

“Any time you try a decent crime, you got 50 ways you’re gonna f**k up. If you think of 25 of them, then you’re a genius… and you ain’t no genius.”

And neither was Robinson.
