Grapevine police say a man posing as a police officer pulled over a woman and ordered her to pay him $20 to dismiss a phony speeding ticket.
A woman told police she had been pulled over in the 2000 block of Texas 26, near Grapevine Mills, by a man driving a white, unmarked Ford Crown Victoria sedan.
A white man in his 30s with a medium build dressed in a police uniform, with no belt, badge or gun, told her she was going 5 mph over the speed limit and if she gave him a $20 she could get out of the ticket, police said.
