Woman says fake cop stopped her twice near Superior

A woman who says she was pulled over by a man claiming to be a police deputy says the encounter was not her first with the fake cop, indicating he may have been stalking her.

A woman who says she was pulled over by a man claiming to be a police deputy says the encounter was not her first with the fake cop, indicating he may have been stalking her.

The woman spoke exclusively with Fox 21 about the incidents near Superior that have left her scared and sleepless.

"I can picture him in my head," the woman said. "I can hear his voice in my head. ... It's just nerve wracking."

The woman asked that her identity not be revealed because she's said she's living in fear and she believes the man could be targeting her.

"I'm so scared of going different places because I don't know if I'm being watched."

The woman said she had two encounters with a man who claimed he was a deputy.

"Next thing I know, the lights came on like a cop car was pulling me over, so I stopped, pulled over."

She said the first time was 10:25 p.m. March 19 on Wisconsin Highway 105. The next time was 9:30 p.m. March 25 on the same road. Both times the woman was driving alone.

"He acted like a cop," she said.

She said both times he told her he received a report that she was swerving on the road. Both times he made her get out of her car.

"He asked me to, like, kind of put my hands up to the windows, and he patted me down, and he asked me to walk the line," she said.

Then, she said, he let her go with a verbal warning. The first time, she said, she felt lucky that she got away without a ticket. The second time, she felt she was lucky to get away.

She realized something was wrong when she started questioning him.

"He was stuttering. ... He wasn't confident in himself."

Again, she said, he gave her a verbal warning and let her go. But that time, she called the Douglas County Sheriff's Office to check him out, and they told her they didn't have a deputy in her area.

She said he was wearing a gray shirt, gray pants and a black jacket with a logo. She couldn't see the logo. He was driving a light blue four-door sedan with a spotlight on the side and flashing lights in the dashboard.

"He said he was a sheriff, an undercover sheriff."

She described the man as 5 feet 4 inches tall, 150 pounds, in his mid-30s with a round face, short brown hair and clean-cut look. At last check, authorities had no suspects.
