Citizen Makes Traffic Stop, Shoots Driver With Taser

`A North Texas man in jail on charges of impersonating a police officer and robbery said he did it to save lives.

Micheal Reilley said he saw someone driving a pickup truck erratically on Interstate 30 in Dallas Sunday morning.

Reilley, thinking the driver of the truck was under the influence, called 911 and said he was an Arlington officer in need of assistance. [..]

Before Dallas police arrived, the driver of the pickup truck, Carlos Lopez, pulled over.

Reilley, still claiming to be a police officer, also pulled over. The two men started fighting after Reilley identified himself as a officer and asked for Lopez’s wallet. Reillen then shot Lopez 10 times with a Taser gun, police said.’
