Remember Matthew Scheidt, the professional wannabe?
Maybe this will refresh your memory: Teen posed as physician's assistant in hospital's ER, cops say
The Osceola teen even performed CPR on a patient in cardiac arrest in a hospital.
He was no Doogie Howser, M.D.
The 18-year-old is in the news again.
Scheidt was busted in South Beach yesterday while driving a car that resembled an unmarked police car before making a strategical error: He pulled up next to a real cop working an undercover detail, reports the Orlando Sentinel.
He looked like a cop: He had an Osceola County sheriff's badge, deputies' T-shirts, a .380-caliber Ruger handgun loaded with hollow-point bullets, a Taser X26 stun gun, a folding knife, handcuffs, a Motorola police radio and an ankle holster, records show.
But apparently he didn't pass the real cop smell test.
Welcome, Matthew, to the list of some of FloriDUH's worst fake cops.
