Suffolk County police have arrested a Port Jefferson Station man for allegedly impersonating a police officer and taking a 19-year-old into custody.

Police say that David Bradley was in a road rage incident with another driver at Woodhull Avenue and Route 347 in Port Jefferson Station on Sunday.

They say Bradley pulled his vehicle behind the other car and activated emergency lights. Bradley, who was wearing a bulletproof vest, a badge and had what appeared to be a gun in a holster, identified himself as a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agent, according to police.

Bradley then reportedly handcuffed the teen put him in his vehicle and drove  to his Grove Street home.

Police say that Bradley removed the handcuffs after approximately five minutes and returned the victim to his car and allowed him to leave.

The teen went to police on Monday.  The same day, Bradley went police to file a complaint about the road rage incident. Bradley, 39, was arrested.

Police say that Bradley had claimed to be an ICE agent to try to enter a crime scene on May 4. He faces an additional charge connected with that incident.

Bradley is scheduled for arraignment Wednesday in Central Islip.

Officers are asking anyone who may have had similar contact with Bradley to call 631-854-8626.
