RALEIGH (WTVD) -- A 16-year-old was charged with impersonating a police officer after pulling people over with a blue light on his car, according to warrants.

Mathis Dean was arrested on Buffaloe Road.

Warrants allege that the blue light made people think he was a law enforcement officer, although Dean never got out of his car.

He was released back to his parents.
