State police arrest man posing as NYPD detective

State authorities say they have arrested a man who has been impersonating a police officer.
Police say Popeye Wittingham, 47, was pulled over in Westport with flashing lights on his vehicle and a badge to attempt to fool people into thinking he was a NYPD detective.
Wittingham apparently is a clergy volunteer from the NYPD. Authorities say he has racked up a long arrest record including attempted murder.
