A 56-year-old Aurora man has pleaded not guilty to charges he impersonated a Warrenville police officer.

Jeffrey M. Spiewak, of the 3000 block of Anton Drive, has been indicted on one count of false personation of a peace officer after authorities said he flashed a gold badge and attempted to pull over a female driver at 2 p.m. April 21 in Warrenville. He is also charged with a misdemeanor count of disorderly conduct.

The woman called 911 and told police he was driving a newer-model yellow Camaro directly alongside her for 1.4 miles while attempting to get her to stop in the area of Butterfield and Winfield roads, police said.

The victim later told police the driver of the Camaro displayed a gold-colored badge and pointed with his hand at the victim to pull over. After a short period of time, the two vehicles went in separate directions.

Spiewak is free on $20,000 bail. His next court appearance is scheduled for Aug. 17.
