Tulsa Police are urging caution because of a fake cop. Several men driving a white Caprice with a light inside and wearing black T-shirts with the word 'Police' on them, pulled over a car full of people.

The fake officers handcuffed them and even pointed guns at them. They eventually let the people go and now the real police are reminding everyone to be careful.

They're offering these tips. Don't pull over for unmarked cars, instead, go to the nearest, well-lit busy area before getting out. All officers must carry a badge and a commission card with their picture on it.

Also you can ask to see the officer's supervisor. They have to call one to the scene.
