BALTIMORE, MD – Maryland State Police arrested a police impersonator attempting to conduct a traffic stop on I-695 on Saturday night.
The suspect has been identified as Timothy Ervin Trivett, 54, of Yorktown, Virginia. Trivett was arrested on scene without incident and charged with impersonating a police officer and multiple handgun charges. He was the driver and sole occupant of the vehicle involved in the incident.

The trooper pulled behind the Impala and immediately made contact with the impersonating police officer, later identified as Trivett.
Trivett was wearing what appeared to be police equipment, body armor, and a uniform.
State police have consulted with the Baltimore County State’s Attorney. Trivett was processed and taken to the Baltimore County Detention Center where he was later released on an unsecured bond.
