    BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) - Two Indianapolis security officers are facing charges of impersonating police officers after police said they escorted Lil Wayne’s tour buses with flashing lights and sirens early Wednesday morning in Bloomington.

    Bloomington police said Ronald Andre Harrod, 43, and Larry Lee Richardson, 23, both of Indianapolis, are charged with impersonating a public servant.

    Bloomington Police Department Capt. Joe Qualters said the two were wearing police-type uniforms and gun belts as they drove a caravan of tour buses from Assembly Hall to a local Nightclub. Lil Wayne performed a concert Tuesday night at Assembly Hall to help kick off Little 500 week at Indiana University.

    Police said Richardson was leading the caravan in an unmarked Crown Victoria with flashing red and blue lights and sirens blaring at about 1:40 a.m. Wednesday. Harrod was following the caravan in a Dodge Intrepid with red and blue lights flashing.

    Both Richardson and Harrod told police they are security officers for an Indianapolis company and have permission and the credentials to drive with lights and sirens.

    They probably have credentials. Security companies are providing escorts for funerals under these credentials. Not that I agree with it.....
    This is for all you parents that like to put your kids names on the back of your mini-vans.

    STOP IT! There are predators that will use that information against them!

      Well, it was a hip-hop/gangsta rap concert, so maybe they figured there would be at least one DOA before the night ended?

        I've written quite a few for forward facing blue lights and done a suspicious activity report on a couple that were just too over the top but I didn't have anything for an impersonation charge. Like one guy who had clear strobes, a spotlight, handcuffs on the spot light and some sort of badge clipped to the visor. Nothing to charge him with, but just so when something pops up he's on record.

          What/who the heck is "Lil Wayne"? I must be behind on the times because I have never heard of him/it.

Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man." - Thomas Jefferson

              Crdentials? I remember when MCSD allowed several special deputy security guards have these lights in thier own car. We towed them often here in Hendricks County because apperently they considered themselves able to pull cars over here also. The statute is clear on this matter. NO police chief or sheriff has any authority in allowing anyone to use red and blue lights in thier car. Statute states it must be a government or municipal owned vehicle. I have never read a statue that stated just having the light in thier car is illegal. It must be turned on. Correct me if I am wrong but I beleive the statute cleary states it must be iluminating?

The old school of thought from the Prosecutor (in our county) was that the mere possession of a red/blue light or siren wasn't enough, they must have been in "operation" to qualify as a violation. I remember writing one ghetto ride that had neon blue lights around the entire under carriage of his vehicle.........he had no idea I could write him for impersonating a volunteer firefighter. It was a humerous stop.

                  IC 9-19-14-5.5(b) states:

                  A person who:
                  (1) purchases or otherwise acquires a vehicle with equipment described by sections 2 or 5 of this chapter; and
                  (2) is not authorized to display a red and white or red and blue lamp upon the vehicle;
                  shall immediately remove the red and white or red and blue lamp from the vehicle.
                  IC 9-19-14-6(b) makes any violation of Chapter 14 a C infraction. Also, INDOT (of all agencies) has the authority to designate and authorize non-police/fire/EMS vehicles as emergency vehicles.

                    They have the means, that's not to say it's being done correctly! What these 2 crackheads don't realize is that the escort permit is only good for Marion County and it must be for a funeral or sports team.

                        In Marion County, There seems to be a heck of a lot my "Funeral Escorts" with red and blue lights in their cars that funeral homes. I just dont really like the idea of Joe Shmoe running around with R&B lights. It is just confusing for the average citizen to distinguise. Like the security guard cars that look as close to the real thing as possible. I have had to do a double take before

                          I've seen multiple special deputies from Marion County driving the Ford Taurus or Dodge Stratus. Those were, the years they were available, fairly common fleet vehicles (just not typically with police, mostly rental car companies).
