* At age 14, Vincent Richardson embarrassed the entire Chicago police force when he walked into a south side police station, wearing a uniform, and had the officers believe the words that were coming out of his mouth: that he was a rookie sent from another station to help.
In turn, they put him to work for six hours by allowing him to ride shotgun on five traffic accidents. He also used the police computer to run license plates and even took the wheel of a police car and assisted in apprehending a suspect.
For that little diddy he got several officers suspended (but only for a few days); and that was after Then-Mayor Richard M. Daley laid into them. Since he was only an EIGHTH GRADER at the time, he got off with serving juvenile detention. That was in 2009.
But dude was so cocky he did this two more times.
In 2013, he was arrested again for impersonating an officer when he attempted to purchase a duty belt and police clothes from a Northwest Side uniform shop.
But this latest arrest, which happened in May 2015 was the result of a traffic stop. According to a police report, Richardson was driving a sports utility vehicle and while its unclear WHY he was stopped by police, when he was stopped they found him wearing a “police-style” bulletproof vest and a “replica firearm” in his waitband.
And there’s more.
