Boy who pretended to be cop back in custody

CHICAGO (AP) -- A teenager who pleaded guilty to impersonating a Chicago police officer and later pretending to be a grown-up to steal a Lexus from a dealership is back in custody.

A Cook County judge has ruled that the 15-year-old boy violated the conditions of his probation by not being home during court-ordered visits this summer.

The boy pleaded guilty in May. Under his probation, he could only leave home for school, church and medical emergencies.

In January, the boy, whose name isn't being released because he's a juvenile, went into a police station wearing a uniform and went on patrol and assisted in an arrest.

He later dressed in a suit and stole a Lexus from a dealership after saying he wanted to go on a test drive.

He's expected to be sentenced on Sept. 29.
