Chicago police arrested a 14-year-old boy for allegedly impersonating one of their own Saturday.

The boy, who has been charged as a juvenile for impersonating an officer, walked into the Grand Crossing District station, 7040 S. Cottage Grove Ave., dressed in a Chicago police uniform, police spokeswoman Monique Bond said. The boy, who reported for duty about 1:30 p.m., partnered with another police officer for about five hours.

The boy identified himself as an officer from another district but was detailed for the day to Grand Crossing and also was savvy enough to sign out a police radio and a ticket book, according to a source. The source also said the boy went on traffic stops with the officer he went on the street with.

Ha, that's great. I think they should consider hiring him for juvie detail, or something, and make it legal. If it worked once, and he's apparently done it before, they should take advantage of it.

I cant imagine they'll be too hard on him. If they work it right, they could actually turn it into a great PR move for recruitment.

You know, on the scale of bad out there, this crime has to rate pretty low. I'm not sure how it could really be considered much of a crime, actually, considering he was trying to take part in enforcing the law. Way to go kid!
