Fake cop nabbed

NEW YORK -- Police arrested a college student Wednesday near New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport and charged him with impersonating a federal agent.

Stephan Kishore's minivan was pulled over after an officer noticed a large police decal on a rear door of the van, as well as red and blue strobe lights on the dashboard, prosecutors said.

Authorities said Kishore showed the officer a Homeland Security badge and said he was on duty. But the real cop said he noticed the back of the badge was imprinted with the words "CopShop.com Collectible Badge. Not For Official Use."
Kishore, who is being held on $50,000 bail, could get seven years in prison if convicted.
