A Connecticut woman was arrested in Washington, D.C. on Saturday after allegedly impersonating a military police officer, then attempting to drive away from law-enforcement officials. Linda Magovern, 63, was stopped near a checkpoint in the nation’s capital, which has heightened police presence ahead of President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. Police say Magovern told them she was a military police officer and “a part of the presidential cabinet,” according to NBC Washington. She then produced a military challenge coin. When an officer told Magovern to park, she allegedly sped off, before being arrested near Union Station. She currently faces charges of fleeing arrest, impersonating a law enforcement officer, and failure to comply, according to NBC.
