The adopted son of the Agawam, Massachusetts, mayor was arrested Thursday after Connecticut State Police say he impersonated a police officer out of Massachusetts.
Antonio Stephens, 20, the son of Agawam Mayor Richard Cohen, turned himself in to police, according to necn affiliate WWLP.
Connecticut State Police say Stephens was driving on I-91 south in Enfield and flash high beams at a trooper to get him to move out of the way. Stephens also had flashing red and blue lights, but police say it was not a police vehicle.
Police say Stephens drove at a high rate of speed and eventually slowed down due to traffic. When the officer approached him, Stephens allegedly told him he was a Sheriff's Officer in Massachusetts.
Stephens sped off when the officer got out of his car. He was located after his license plate was tracked.
Stephens was released on $1,000 bond. He will be arraigned on Dec. 17.
