Several officers were dispatched to Harvard St. after receiving a report of a traffic incident involving an off-duty police officer. Upon arrival, officers observed two vehicles pulled over on the side of Harvard St. Officers spoke with the off-duty officer who stated she was driving down Harvard St. when she noticed the other vehicle following very closely behind her. When the cars were stopped at a traffic light, the driver of the second vehicle got out of his vehicle, saying he was a police officer. The off-duty officer also got out of her vehicle and attempted to show the driver her police credentials. At this time, the driver of the second vehicle returned to his car and sped away, making contact with the off-duty officer. She then returned to her vehicle and followed the vehicle. Both vehicles came to a stop on Harvard St. and remained in their vehicles until officers arrived on scene. The driver of the second vehicle was placed under arrest for Operating to Endanger, Impersonating an Officer, and A&B with a Dangerous Weapon (motor vehicle).
