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 " Collectible Badge. Not For Official Use."
Kishore, who is being held on $50,000 bail, could get seven years in prison if convicted.
