A man accused of trying to make several traffic stops while pretending to be a cop is under arrest.

Alan Grabovetsky was taken into custody last night, after he pulled over a driver in downtown redwood city.

Police say earlier in the day, the 19-year-old stopped a woman in Millbrae, told her she'd been speeding, and demanded money.

Police say Grabovetsky was driving a pickup truck with police lights that he also used in incidents in Pacifica and near SFO.
