An off-duty PG County officer was the victim of road rage earlier this month while traveling in her unmarked, personal vehicle.
The officer was traveling on Dorsey Road in Hanover at approximately 5:45 p.m. on February 19 when a silver Chevy Impala pulled up next to her and a male suspect displayed a silver badge while yelling through the window.
Police say the driver then engaged in a "road rage" incident, where he pulled ahead of the victim, slowed down and started slamming on his brakes.
"The suspect then kept changing lanes so the victim could not pass," police said.
The victim was able to pull off into a parking lot as the suspect continued on Dorsey Road. An investigation was launched after the victim reported the incident and it was determined that the suspect was a private investigator, not a police officer.
On February 22 the victim positively ID'd the suspect from a photo lineup as 20-year-old Jack Tyler Chandler of Severn. A warrant was issued for impersonating a police officer and the suspect, after being contacted, turned himself in.
