A West Hempstead man impersonated a police officer and pulled over a driver in Great Neck last Wednesday, according to Nassau County police.

Steven Kleinman, 58, tailgated and honked at a 43-year-old woman driving on Grace Avenue, according to a police report. 

Kleinman then allegedly cut off the woman, exited his car and approached her while displaying a police mini shield and identifying himself as a police officer.

Kleinman told the woman she had violated vehicle and traffic laws before entering 40 Stoner Ave. in Great Neck, according to the police report, where he was arrested and charged with criminal impersonation in the first degree.

Kleinman was arraigned Thursday, Nov. 7 at First District Court in Hempstead.
