When the man dressed in a wig and Harry Potter glasses with caked-on makeup and lipstick pulled her over and said he was a police officer, Erin Hartz thought she was an unwitting participant in the next John Waters movie.
"This would only happen in Baltimore," the 23-year-old recalls thinking.
The man flicked on a flashlight and shined it in her eyes, scanned her license and registration, then told her not to speed. "Get home and drive safe."
Watching from a side mirror, she said he approached her vehicle in what can only be described as a "prance, a flamboyant shimmy." He was tall, lanky, wearing a fake-looking ginger bob-style wig, an oversize police hat and blue-pleated pants that "poofed" at the hips. He was white and probably in his 40s.
A lanyard with a picture ID hung around his neck, and he was wearing white gloves. The man told Hartz she had been speeding, then walked away. Hartz said it occurred to her that he hadn't said what the speed limit was, and she yelled to him to ask. He said 25 (it's actually 30 mph on Falls Road) and drove away.

While I don't think I would have fallen for this one I may have had to play it safe anyways because in this day and age it may be okay for a police officer to be transsexual....so while I may have had some reservations about the authenticity of the officer's identity (forgive the pun), I would have kept quiet just in case he happened to be one of the minute number of police officers in the USA who are transexual and dress as women in public...
I have to say though this is very funny....
