Here's one way you shouldn't try to get out of a ticket. Arlington County police say a 38-year-old Sterling man falsely claimed he was a police officer after being pulled over Saturday night.

According to, Hussein Al-Rehaief was charged with impersonating an officer and failure to obey a highway sign.

Al-Rehaief was pulled over in the 1000 block of N. Irving Street in Clarendon at 10:38 p.m. Authorities say he told the officer he was a police officer as well and displayed a badge.

It was later determined Al-Rehaief was actually a medical assistant at a doctor's office.
