    York County man charged with assault, impersonating officer

    A 34-year-old man has been charged with impersonating a police officer and assault and battery of a woman he directed to pull over to the side of a road.

    John M. Cannella, of the 90 block of Rowe Drive, was arrested Wednesday by the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office with help from Poquoson police, according to a news release.

    A woman told authorities that she was driving in York County on Oct. 30 when a man driving in a vehicle alongside directed her to pull over, the release from the York-Poquoson Sheriff’s Office says.

    The man told the woman he was a law enforcement officer, then touched her in an inappropriate way, the release says. No other details of the exchange were released.

    The sheriff’s office investigated the complaint and charged Cannella.

    Good reason for women to be carrying. Wonder how she got away from the threat without it escalating.

    Took a long time to make the paper from Oct.10th. It doesn't say when the arrest was made so may have been just recently.

    I sure hope it takes more than this woman's word to convict this individual. He may very well be guilty, but anyone is capable of lying.
