‘Police Impersonator’ Attempts to Arrest Black Teen in Houston, Texas

‘Police Impersonator’ Attempts to Arrest Black Teen in Houston, Texas. Marvin Gibson and his co-worker doiing lawn care for D&M Lawn Care in the Houston, Texas area were harassed by a white man dressed as a police officer that the Houston Police‏ Department claims is not one of theirs.




The incident happened while the teens were doing lawn care and passing out cards for their business. When a white man dressed as a Houston police officer arrives on location, Marvin begins to film the interaction. Marvin tells the man impersonating a police officer that he was passing out his lawn care business cards. The police impersonator then asks Marvin to see his ID, to which Marvin replies he doesn’t have it on him. (Who wants to give their government vitals to a man pretending to be a police officer?). Marvin asks the officer for his identification because the impersonator clearly does not have his name stitched into the pocket of his uniform. The impersonator brandishes a pair of handcuffs and tells Marvin to put his hands behind his back.

Still filming, Marvin backs away, asking the officer for his card.
