SUFFOLK, Va. — Agnes Cox stopped on Jan. 24 for a man she assumed was a Suffolk police officer.

The man in the unmarked, red Chevy Impala asked for her driver's license and told her she had been swerving. He was courteous, but he also pointed out that she wasn't wearing a seat belt and asked who owned the car. When he returned with her license that afternoon, he didn't give her a ticket. Instead, he told Cox she was free to leave.
