“His excuse was, well I like to play airsoft games and we play roles,” Wilson said. “But it also may help me get out of a ticket if I’m caught speeding.”
Wilson said a search of the truck revealed airsoft handguns and rifle that appeared real as well as handcuffs, what looked like a police helmet, body armor and handheld radios, as well as insignias and tools a real police officer might use on the job. Wilson said the search also revealed a fake King County sheriff's badge and methamphetamines.
McMahon was arrested and charged for illegal drug possession and impersonating a law enforcement officer.
Wilson says it's not clear if anyone has ever been stopped by McMahon believing he was a real policeman.
“We don’t know,” he said. “So if somebody has, then please come forward and let your local law enforcement agency know, or let us know.”
