NBC Charlotte has confirmed that the vehicle in the photo is a legitimate Mecklenburg County ABC unit vehicle. They noted that ABC Chief Crowley said that his department rarely pulls people over, but they can and will if they suspect someone driving under the influence.
Police impersonators have been making the news recently for pulling people over and either robbing, assaulting, or kidnapping them. If you ever feel uneasy after being pulled over by an unmarked car, call 911 immediately to confirm if it’s a government agent. You are allowed to keep your door locked, your window cracked, and ask anyone approaching your vehicle for official ID. By law, all government officials are required to present it upon request.
Please help spread the word.
