The “suspicious man”

An intoxicated male white, 6-feet tall, wearing a black coat is driving a black Ford Taurus the wrong way on the street and he’s yelling into a loud speaker, pretending to be the police.  The 19th district police commander reports that he is the suspicious man, driving his unmarked Ford Taurus.
