Menlo Park man accused of faking police lights with cellphone app


A 23-year-old Menlo Park man was arrested Monday night for allegedly impersonating a police officer by using a cellphone application that flashes red and blue light, and then pretending to be a witness, police said.

The victim called police around 11 p.m. while sitting in her boyfriend's car on Campbell Lane when David Endliss reportedly flashed the lights.

Police discovered that Mr. Endliss, instead of witnessing the incident, allegedly instigated it.

Mr. Endliss was booked into San Mateo County jail.

Is this anything to do with the "dark SUV" in the Smothers incident?

If you're going to bust this guy for impersonating a cop with an iPhone app, the least you can do is give him a day's worth of a cop's salary so he can afford to hire a lawyer to defend himself. Geez. Maybe a day's worth of pension credit also for the appeal?
