Road rage leads to police impersonator arrest


Josue Cruz-Ayala

GWINNETT COUNTY, Ga.,None - Gwinnett County police arrested a man who they said was involved in a road rage incident while posing as a police officer.

Authorities told Channel 2 Action News that Jason Milczek of Lilburn called them to report a suspicious vehicle with flashing blue lights trying to pull him over near Five Forks Trickum and Killian Hill roads.

Milczek told police he suspected the black Ford Explorer was not a police vehicle and when he refused to stop the truck began to tailgate him for several minutes.

Milczek's vehicle ran out of gas. When he pulled over on the side of the road, the driver of the Explorer threw an empty bottle at him. Police were not able to get to the scene in time, but Milczek gave them a license plate number that led them to a vacant home.

A week later, Gwinnett County police located the Ford Explorer involved in the incident and pulled the driver over for window tint violations and for making an unsafe lane change.

Police said they arrested Josue Cruz-Ayala, 19, of Lawrenceville when they found a small light bar mounted on the dashboard. Cruz-Ayala was charged with fleeing or eluding police, impersonation of a police vehicle and reckless conduct.

Gwinnett County police said the arrest was not related to another police impersonation case where the suspect forced a woman to beg for her release.
