Two people in Palm Bay were arrested after police say she was using a red and blue light, similar to an unmarked cop car light, to move vehicles out of her way.
Samantha Freeman, 24, was driving a blue Mitsubishi and heading westbound on Malabar Road on July 5 when an officer behind her witnessed the Mitsubishi mimic an unmarked police vehicle by using the light multiple times to move cars out of her way.
According to a police report, when the officer pulled her over, Maura Dorazio, 23, the passenger of the vehicle, immediately admitted to using the light.
When the officer asked who the man in the back seat was Dorazio claimed his name was Sean and they had just met him at a strip club. The man, Ryan Logan, 22, then ran out of the car in attempt to flee the police.
Officers were able to locate Logan and Dorazio admitted that he was her ex-boyfriend and Freeman's current boyfriend and that he had a warrant for his arrest. Logan was placed under arrest.
Dorazio and Freeman were arrested on charges of prohibited use of red and blue lights.
