Two St. Charles teens who reportedly used a car-mounted loudspeaker to make "siren noises" and to tell other drivers to pull over have been arrested and charged with impersonating police officers.
Michael McSweeney, 18, was ordered held on $5,000 bail. His alleged accomplice, 19-year-old Jeffrey Stolzenburg, was released and ordered by a Kane County Judge to be home by 8 p.m. everyday while his case is pending.
The pair were in a Chevy Malibu near Randall and Silver Glen Roads at about 8:20 p.m. Wednesday when they got on the loudspeaker, ordered some drivers to pull over and made siren noises, said South Elgin Police Sgt. Mike Doty.
A suspicious driver reported them to the real police, who arrested them in the parking lot of a shopping center in the northwest suburb.
Both have court appearances on June 23.
