Legal Question

Asked on: 8/12/13, 6:14 am

If a person dressed as a police officer confronts me in some way, by pulling me over, or knocking on my door, am I legally allowed to declare that I'm making a citizens arrest for impersonating a police officer?

My thinking is police always arrest innocent people, ( till proven guilty, right?) So if some 200 lb guy pulls me over don't I have reasonable suspicion he isn't a cop? Since they have physical tests.
