A 14-year-old boy has caused embarrassment to the Chicago Police Department after he put on a faux police uniform, posed as a police officer, and was put on patrol for five hours before anyone noticed.

Police officials announced an investigation into what they described as a serious breach of security. The boy, who aspires to be a police officer, did not issue any tickets or drive the squad car. He has been charged with impersonating an officer.
