The vehicle stopped someone on Highway 6 near Gallatin, with the man reportedly representing himself as a law enforcement officer.  He issued the citizen citations from the state of New York.

The Patrol notes an unknown make of a white cargo-style van driving in front of the citizen’s vehicle that might have been working in conjunction with the individual posing as a law enforcement officer.
